"They will overturn this act."—Brian Brown, NOM president—

National Organization for Marriage

Washington, D.C. — The National Organization for Marriage today called Maryland's same-sex marriage legislation meaningless following Gov. Martin O'Malley's signature yesterday of a bill recognizing same-sex unions.

Maryland voters, not politicians, have the final say on marriage, NOM President Brian Brown said.

"The Maryland same-sex marriage legislation is a meaningless, symbolic act," Brown said. "The people of Maryland, not politicians, will have the final say on marriage. And they will overturn this act of the General Assembly."
