Legislature to Hold Public Hearing on Same-Sex Marriage Law in the Wake of Kerrigan

When statutes and a supreme court ruling conflict the legislature should look at revising its statutes.

Uncertainty can make life uncomfortable for citizens, lawyers, and judges – it’s generally a bad thing.

Today, the legislature is holding a hearing on exactly what to do in the wake of Kerrigan. Link.

Proposed legislation would transform all civil unions into marriages by October 2010 and clean up statutory language restricting marriage between a man and a woman.

You can read the text of the bill here. The bill is called: “An Act Implementing the Guarantee of Equal Protection under the Constitution of the State for Same-Sex Couples.”

Congratulations to local bloggers at “Two Ladies In Waiting”  who are geting married on Saturday.
