Maine House Passes Marriage Equality Bill 89-58

Maine_smallThe Maine House has passed the marriage equality bill by a vote of 89-58. 

Bangor Daily News: "The vote of 89 in favor to 58 opposed sends the LD 1020 back to the Senate for its final approval. The House, in a 85 to 62 vote also rejected a try to send the matter to referendum. The proposal would make Maine the fifth state to allow gay marriage. But it's unclear whether Gov. John Baldacci would sign the bill. Baldacci remains undecided."
