    Even if they do and the governor signs it, Maryland has a people’s veto option, this’ll end up on the ballot like in Maine and probably be overturned.

  2. It’ll end up on the ballot in 2012. That’s one whole year to raise the percentage of support for the law. Better than not passing it at all.

      Actually more likely it’ll end up on the ballot this year, just like the one in Maine (passed in May 2009, voted down in November of that year). An off year election will only bring out the die hards and yet again equal marriage will lose at the ballot box after the right had been granted in the first place.
