State Sens. Bartlett and Brannigan Approve Same-Sex Marriage Bill

Westbrook's two state senators, Phil Bartlett (D-Cumberland County) and Joseph Brannigan (D-Cumberland), each voted yea on LD 1020, "An Act To End Discrimination in Civil Marriage and Affirm Religious Freedom." The Senate approved the bill 21-14, so it will be sent to the Maine House of Representatives, where Rep. Ann Peoples (D-Westbrook) is a co-sponsor of the legislation, and Rep. Tim Driscoll (D-Westbrook) is undecided, at least according to today's American Journal (sorry, no link).
