Breaking: Vermont Legislature Overrides Gay Marriage Veto

Just across the internets:


MONTPELIER — The Vermont House has voted, 100-49 to override Gov. Jim Douglas' veto of a bill that would allow same-sex marriage.

Vermont will become the fourth state to legalize marriages of gay and lesbian couples. The others are Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa.

The Vermont Senate voted earlier this morning to override Gov. Jim Douglas' veto of the same-sex marriage legislation.

The vote passed, 23-5.

Note [Gabe]: Vermont is the only state to legalize gay marriage though the legislature and not under a court order.
