Vermont Senate Votes for gay marriage

Vermont Senate Votes for gay marriage

Just moments ago, the Vermont State Senate voted with overwhelming support to pass S.115 - the bill to legalize same-sex marriage in Vermont.
26 Senators of the thirty total, cast their vote in support of marriage equality.

The issue now goes to the State House of Representatives next week for a vote where it is expected to pass easily. The Governor could still veto it, though that seems unlikely.
