Calif. Assembly passes bill to allow gay marriage - Yahoo! News

Wow, are we starting to make progress or should I not get my hopes up?

Update....of course Arnold is going to veto it...and you know his press secretary's line about not letting the legislature overturn the voter's decision is a bunch of crap, because I can think of at least two different occasions when the voters passed something and then the legislature overturned it.

They just use that argument when it fits their agenda....supporting the people's vote my ass.

I agree with his reasoning, though, and that's hard for me to admit. I think that since the people have made their voice heard on the first round, they should make their voice heard on the 2nd round. If it were a different scenario, something the Republicans wanted and the people voted against it then the Republicans did an end-run and pushed it through the legislature anyway, the Democrats would be up in arms.

Yeah but a few years ago, Californians passed a cap on insurance rates and the legislature overturned it and I think they also passed something regarding welfare for illegal immigrants and the legislature overturned it too....so his point of doing what the people want only fits this scenario...it is not like this is some kind of issue they always stand on (voters over lawmakers).
