Vermont Legislature Is the First to Legalize Gay Marriage!

Not even the veto of Governor Jim Douglas could stop the Vermont legislature's true love for gay marriage. Today, the state house and senate overrode a veto by 100-49 and 23-5, to become the first state to legislatively approve same-sex marriage. In other words, Vermont is the first state where the elected legislature, and not the court, legalized gay marriage.

Last week, Iowa's supreme court approved gay marriage, ruling that the state's ban was unconstitutional. Vermont joins Iowa, Connecticut, and Massachusetts as the only states in the US where all citizens can marry the person of their choice.
