Maryland Gov. Would Sign Marriage Bill

Maryland Gov. Would Sign Marriage Bill


Maryland governor Martin O'Malley said Thursday he would sign a marriage equality bill if he were reelected and the state's general assembly were able to pass one, according to The Washington Post.

"I don't have a crystal ball to predict how this goes," O'Malley, a Democrat, said during an "Ask the Governor" segment on a Maryland news show, "but I do know this: I know the people of our state well enough that for all of the differences and diversities of backgrounds and opinions, that all of us want to find a way to craft our laws in such a way that it treats people equally under the law."

O'Malley has previously said he prefers civil unions to marriage, but added, "Should the legislature find a way to reach that compromise in another way, I would sign a bill like that ... we need to find a way to support equal rights, and that is true when it comes to committed gay and lesbian couples and the unions in which they choose to enter and raise children and all the issues that go with that."
