The bill now goes to Governor Lynch. He can sign it into law, not sign it and let it become law, or veto it.
He's been quite clear that he believes "marriage is between a man and a woman."
Today Maine Governor John Baldacci signed Maine's marriage equality bill into law. Here's a little of what he said:
"In the past, I opposed gay marriage while supporting the idea of civil unions. I have 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."
Let us hope that Governor Lynch emulates Governor Baldacci.
All this equality in one week! Congratulations, Maine!
