Vermont state Sen. John Campbell says he’s going to introduce a gay marriage bill when the Legislature convenes in January.
Campbell says gay marriage is an important issue for many Vermonters, but he calls it a political land mine.
Since 2000 Vermont has allowed same sex couples to be joined in civil unions.
In April, a commission of legislative leaders formed to study whether Vermont should go beyond civil unions and enact gay marriage issued a report supporting gay marriage, but stopped short of recommending such a step.
