Gay Marriage Bill marches towards passage in Vermont House.

"Vermont Freedom to Marry" has the story.
"The Vermont House of Representatives voted by an overwhelming margin to support the freedom to marry. The vote total was 95-52."
There were some amendments designed to quell fears on the traditional marriage side of the aisle or at least placate those persons for the time being. Governor Douglas is expected to veto the final version in what has to be termed a symbolic gesture.
"After the final house vote tomorrow (Friday the 3rd), we expect the Senate to concur with the House amendments before promptly forwarding the bill to the Governor. The override vote may come as early as Tuesday."
Vermont will then become the first state to allow gay "marriage" by some function of the people's will.
