***UPDATE: The VT house has just overridden the governor’s veto. This makes VT the first state in the country to legislatively allow same-sex couples the right to marry. Fantastic.
Now, I need to get back to paying attention in Con Law.
I haven’t mention it much yet, but VT has an important day today.
Recently, the VT legislature passed a bill which would legalize same-sex marriage. But, the high profile bill was vetoed by the Governor.
Today, the legislature is taking up the vote again to over-ride the Governor’s veto. The Senate just passed the measure, and the House is discussing it now. From what I have heard, it’s suppose to be a toss up in the House.

This is how its suppose to be done. No courts. Just debate and logic between the people’s representatives.
