Maryland Voters to Decide Same-Sex Marriage Issue

Matt Bush reports for WAMU that groups opposing the new same-sex marriage law in Maryland have collected 113,000 signatures calling for the measure to be put on the ballot in November.

This is more than twice the number needed to force a referendum on the law.

The new law legalizing same-sex marriage does not go into effect until January, so no same sex marriages will be performed in Maryland before the voters decide in November.
