Maine Officially Becomes 5th State to Legalize Same-Sex Marriage

It is with great pleasure to report that Governor John Baldacci of Maine has signed LD 1020 An Act to End Discrimination in Civil Marriage and Affirm Religious Freedom. Via a press release on his website, the governor who formerly was opposed to marriage has now come out saying "he does not believe civil unions are equal to marriage, and that signing this legislation is the right thing to do".
