Baldacci Signs Equal Marriage Bill

I have the video of the entire House debate of the equal marriage bill and I'll have it online as soon as I can wrangle the file.

In the meantime, things have advanced pretty far since yesterday. The Senate had a procedural vote on the bill and Governor Baldacci quickly signed it, ending weeks of speculation on his position on gay marriage. Baldacci said that he has come to believe that "this is a question of fairness and of equal protection under the law, and that a civil union is not equal to civil marriage."

Full statement here.
