A federal appeals court on Tuesday declared California’s
same-sex marriage ban to be unconstitutional, putting the bitterly
contested, voter-approved law on track for likely consideration by the
U.S. Supreme Court.
Beth Robinson is Board Chair of the Vermont Freedom to Marry Task Force. She says California’s Supreme Court decision to overturn the state’s ban on same-sex marriage will have a huge impact in Vermont,
the first state in the union to support Civil Unions in 2000.
Robinson speaks with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb.
