Congratulations To The Pine State In It's Fight For Equality!

Maine State Seal
AUGUSTA, Maine – Governor John E. Baldacci (D) today signed into law LD 1020, An Act to End Discrimination in Civil Marriage and Affirm Religious Freedom.

Baldacci, who previously opposed marriage equality was a supporter of civil unions, a law that gave some of the numerous rights that opposite sex married couples enjoy and said it was a question of fairness under the laws of the state.

"It guarantees that Maine citizens will be treated equally under Maine's civil marriage laws, and that is the responsibility of the government," said Baldacci.

Also, he went on to say "Just as the Maine Constitution demands that all people are treated equally under the law, it also guarantees that the ultimate political power in the State belongs to the people."

Contact - Governor John Baldacci and thank him for doing the right thing in standing up for all Maine families.

Standing up (ok, sitting down) for our rights!

Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart!
