Vermont begins hearings on same-sex marriage
TheStar.com - March 16, 2009
MONTPELIER, Vt. – Vermont lawmakers are starting a week of hearings on a bill to legalize same-sex marriage.
In 2000, Vermont became the first state in the U.S. to adopt civil unions. House and Senate leaders want to pass the gay marriage bill this legislative session, which ends in May.
In the U.S., same-sex couples can legally marry only in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
It's time to move on now, folks . . . .
