Maine’s governor has signed a bill making the state the fifth to allow gay marriage.
Gov. John Baldacci signed the legislation shortly after the Maine legislature passed it Wednesday.
New Hampshire legislators are also poised to send a gay marriage bill to their governor. He has not indicated whether he’ll sign it.
If gay marriage becomes law in New Hampshire, Rhode Island would be the sole holdout in New England.
Thank you to Gov. Baldacci and the all legislators in the state of Maine.
It’s time, Illinois. Let’s get with it. We’re ready.
