In a historic victory, Vermont became the fourth state to legalize gay marriage. Earlier, Vermont’s governor Jim Douglas vetoed a bill that would allow gay marriage and the state legislature responded by overriding his veto: 23-5 in the state Senate and 100-49 in the House.
Vermont now joins Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa as the only states in the union to allow same-sex couples to legally wed.
4 states down, 46 more to go. There’s much work to be done.
