    Any clues on how this is going to go? Normally legislation wouldn’t be brought to the floor unless there was a likelihood of success but I understand the majority leader in the upper house is against same sex marriage and so may not care if it fails or not.

    Anyway, got my fingers crossed it passes and it bloody well should with all those Democrats. Also RI doesn’t have a people’s veto so no repeats of what happened in Maine.

      It looks good. Republicans and Democrats are largely in support. I’m keeping an eye on this Twitter feed, which is following the debate.
