Vermont lawmakers will try to enact gay marriage law; Minnesota legislature introduces bill defining marriage as a civil contract between two persons

03/05/09 AP:

"Legislative leaders in Vermont pledged Thursday to push for passage of a gay marriage bill before the session ends in May, saying allowing civil unions was a good start but it's now time to end the "inequality" of existing laws."


The Minnesota legislature may revisit its DOMA with a newly introduced bill that would allow same-sex couples to marry and require the state to recognize same-sex marriages performed in out-of-state jurisdictions. "Debate over the bill is likely to be fierce if the legislature's track record on the issue is any guide."
