Calif. Assembly Passes Bill To Allow Gay Marriage

Reuters just reported on the bill being passed yesterday in the California assembly "marking the first time a state legislature in the United States has endorsed gay marriage." It is undetermined whether Governor Schwarznegger, who has been against gay marriage, will sign the bill or not. But, he has said this is a matter best left to the courts to decide. Looks like the California assembly has decided; now comes the wait for his decision to sign or not.


"I think it's a sad day," Republican Assemblywoman Sharon Runner of Lancaster, California, said of the bill's passage.

"I think the people of California want us to do the business of jobs, the economy, education, illegal immigration, and today we had to spend several hours talking about an issue that the voters decided back five years ago, that marriage should be between a man and a woman ... I think it shows how out of touch the legislature is."
