VT Gov. Douglas will Veto Same-sex marriage bill

The Governor of Vermont had a press conference recently where he discuss the legislation regarding same-sex marriage that has been making its way through the VT legislature. He stated that this issue is taking time away from the more pressing issue of the economy that the legislators should be focusing on. So in order to speed the debate over same-sex marriage along he confirmed that he will veto this bill if it reaches his desk. This is because he believes that the civil unions act is sufficient enough and that marriage should remain between a man and a woman. The senate review committee voted unanimously to passed this bill and it also passed through the full senate. It is currently in the house.
Here is a segment discussing his decision and a advertisement countering his decision.
Take a look.
