The House is expected to vote this afternoon on a measure that would repeal the State’s 2009 law that legalized same-sex marriage.
There is a decidedly quiet mood outside the Statehouse today, as both opponents and supporters of gay marriage await an anticipated vote on a repeal. The Republican-sponsored measure attempts to re-define marriage as between a man and a woman. The bill would allow for civil unions.
Statehouse observers expect a close vote, in part because of a strong libertarian streak that runs through many House Republicans.
