Senate Republicans show opposition to SSM in MD


From Jon Fairbanks:

Senate GOP caucus leaders in Maryland say they will not support legislation legalizing gay marriage.

During a private meeting on Tuesday, the group voted to take a formal position against a same-sex marriage bill pending in the Maryland General Assembly.

Senate Minority Leader Nancy C. Jacobs said at least eight of the 12 senators who participated in the caucus voted against the bill.

“We met that threshold,” Jacobs said.  “The caucus expects extensive debate on this bill and we look forward to discussions of why so many Marylanders are passionate about this issue.”
