Commission to hold second hearing at law school

Print More

A legislative commission studying gay marriage meets for the second time today.

The Vermont Commission on Family Recognition and Protection plans to hear from three Vermont Law School professors during a hearing at the law school’s South Royalton campus.

A Utah lawyer who opposes same-sex marriage and heads up the Family Marriage Law Foundation also will testify.

Appointed earlier this year, the commission is to report next spring to lawmakers with its recommendations on whether Vermont should move from civil unions for gay and lesbian couples to full marriage.

The session is set from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Law School’s Chase Center.
