Maryland Senate Approves Same-Sex Marriage

The Maryland state senate voted yesterday to pass legislation to allow same-sex marriages. The Civil Marriage Protection Act was approved by a 25-21 vote and had a strong backing by the democratic majority.

The bill now moves to the Maryland House, which is expected to begin a hearing on the bill today.

If the bill becomes law, Maryland will become the sixth state to allow gay marriage.
