It passed. Big suprise. Now the Governor has to sign it... not sure if ihe will. He is a Democrat but I have heard opposing views on whether or not he would sign or veto it.
All this doesn't matter. Most likely a people's veto will send the bill to the people this november by the fundamentalist. If Baldacci signs it.. basically Mainers vote on it this November. They've already started I'm sure. The fundamentalists are saving the "big guns" for this Novemeber. It is much easier for them to influence the public than elected legislators.
HRC, GLAD, GLAAD, PFLAG, GLSEN, APAs, AMA, AAP... help!
