Special Session on Gay Marriage

Montpelier, Vermont - March 23, 2009

The Vermont Senate will hold a special session today to discuss legalizing same-sex marriage.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted unanimously Friday to advance the civil marriage bill which would allow gay couples to marry in Vermont.

Opponents say they think the traditional definition of marriage between a man and a woman should be preserved. And Governor Jim Douglas says now is the time for the legislature to be focusing on the economy, not same-sex marriage. The full senate meets at 3 p.m.
