Same Sex Marriage Bill Signed In Maryland

Referendum Expected In November

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley signed a gay marriage bill this afternoon which, if it takes effect as scheduled next January, will make the Old Line State the eighth to grant homosexuals the right to marry.

The bill passed the Maryland Senate last week, 25-22 and the state House 72-67, according to Politico.

Opponents of the measure are expected to gather the 56,000 signatures required to have a referendum in November.
