Maine House OKs gay marriage bill
Boston Globe • May 5, 2009
Representatives voted 89-57 Tuesday afternoon to give the bill final approval in favor of the bill after rejecting an amendment that called for a November referendum. The bill was sent back to the Senate, which is expected to take it up when it returns Wednesday.
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.
