Vermont Senate Votes On
Marriage

Vermont's Senate is scheduled to vote on whether the state will grant marriage rights to gay and lesbian couples on Monday.

Vermont's Senate is scheduled to vote on whether the state will grant marriage rights to gay and lesbian couples on Monday.

The senate judiciary committee approved the proposed law 5-0 on Friday. The full vote is scheduled for 3 p.m. EST.

The bill is expected to pass through the senate easily, according to the Burlington Free Press. While the bill is also likely to pass through the house, the margin of victory will probably not be very wide. Vermont Governor Jim Douglas has said publicly that he will not sign the bill if it reaches his desk, but the bill could still become law without his signature if enough legislators can override his veto.
