Same Sex Marriage Arrives In Vermont!

Jim Burroway

April 7th, 2009

The Vermont House just voted to override the Gov. Jim Douglas’s (R) veto of the marriage bill, by a vote of 100-49. This vote, along with the Vermont Senate’s 23-5 override vote earlier this morning, means that same-sex marriage has been approved by the duly elected members of both chambers of Vermont’s legislature.

Full marriage equality has arrived in Vermont.

I can’t believe it. After seeing that we lost a vote in the Senate, I assumed that we would lose the vote.

Thank you, Vermont.

Yay Vermont! It is interesting that VT voted for same sex marriage given that technically they already have marriage equality – this is the thing that the CA Supreme Court kept harping on in the hearings last month so hopefully they will take notice because its not just the difference between a word.

Excellent timing this week. Its about time that people caught on and started issuing Supreme Court decisions and such in OFF-election years.

WOOOOT!! That is AWESOME!!!!!! And look, not one “activist judge” in sight! I am so glad that the legislature in Vermont realized that if they were elected to represent the people than they had to start representing ALL of the people in their districts! This is a wonderful day for Vermont and another step forward for the rest of the nation.
