Marriage update from Maine

Posted on 28 Apr 2009 at 4:02pm

Just got this note from Lee Swislow, executive director of Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders:

The Maine Joint Judiciary Committee has just voted 11-3 that the marriage bill “ought to pass without amendment.”

The vote comes after a public hearing last week in which, Swislow said, “Mainers of all stripes, from the very young to the very old, Democrats and Republicans, Catholics and Unitarians, testified that they support equality for all Mainers.”
