Gay Marriage Commission announces first forum

The Vermont Commission on Family Recognition and Protection – or the Gay Marriage Commission as most people outside of Montpelier are calling it – has scheduled the first few public forums on the issue.

Commission members will meet for a short organization session at Johnson State College on Oct. 10 at 5:30 p.m. Following that, in the Bentley Auditorium at the college, the commission will hold its first forum from 7-9 p.m.

The second forum is scheduled for Bennington, location to be announced, on Nov. 19. Before that, the commission will also meet with legal experts and law students on Oct. 29 from 1-5 p.m. at the Chase Center at Vermont Law School in South Royalton.
