VT: Marriage Veto Could Come Today

Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas could issue his veto of marriage equality as early as today. The bill passed the state House on Friday and will be reconsidered as a formality tomorrow by both chambers due to new language exempting churches from sanctifying gay unions. The state Senate has more than enough votes to override a veto, but the fight will be close in the House. If the override push is successful, we could see marriage equality in Vermont by mid-week.
