And Vermont Makes Four …

April 7th, 2009, by

Vermont became the fourth state to legalize same-sex marriage Tuesday, when the state legislature voted to override the governor’s veto of a same-sex marriage bill. Such marriages can be performed in Vermont as early as September. On the same day, the D.C. Council voted to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. The actions come just days after Iowa legalized same-sex marriages, which are also legal in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

States to watch: New Hampshire and New Jersey.
