Vermont’s Gay Marriage Commission meets Thursday

The Legislative Committee considering the possibility of expanding marriage rights to gay and lesbian couples will hold its historic first meeting Thursday morning at the Statehouse in Montpelier.

Of course, part of the committee’s charge is to hear from Vermonters on the subject, although that’s not what they’ll be doing during their first meeting. Still, if you’re in town between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., swing by Room 11 at the Statehouse. I’ll try to be there early for a good seat.

Also, if you want to write to the committee to tell them your thoughts, here’s the address:

The Vermont Commission on Family Recognition and Protection, c/o Legislative
Council, 115 State Street, Montpelier, VT 05633-5301.
