Strong Equality Endorsement In Maine
Last week's public hearing in Augusta must have had a positive effect because today the Maine Judiciary Committee strongly endorsed a marriage equality bill, sending it on to the state House and Senate by an 11-3 vote. Gov. John Baldacci says he's still undecided about the bill. Today's judiciary committee session was interrupted by a lone female protester who was removed by police after she began shouting that the bill was morally wrong.
