Bid to reverse same sex marriage in Massachusetts fails
News just in.
Lawmakers in Massachusetts have voted 45 to 151 to defeat the proposed constitutional amendment. It had already received votes in one session and needed votes in a second to be placed on the 2008 ballot (there only need to be 50 votes in favour in two sessions to allow the amendment to go to ballot). The next opportunity to place the question on the ballot will be 2012.
You can see the news here.
The bid to kill off the amendment was supported by the leaders of both Houses and the State Governor Deval Patrick.
Some really good pictures of the day here.
