The Vermont Senate and House voted today to override a veto by Governor Jim Douglas of the state's same-sex marriage bill.
The Senate voted 23-5, overriding the veto by a wide margin, while the House squeaked through with a 2/3 majority with a 100-49 vote.
Vermont is now the fourth state to legalize same-sex marriage (with Iowa, Massachusetts, and Connecticut) and the first to do it by a vote of the legislature.
The vote comes nine years after the state legalized civil unions and was the first time Douglas had been overridden in his tenure.
