The Legislature’s Judiciary Committee voted 11-2-1 today in support of a bill to allow gay marriage in Maine.

Eleven members voted in favor of the bill, two voted against it, and one voted to send it to referendum.

The vote was briefly interrupted when a woman began yelling at legislators because she wanted them to reject the bill. Elaine Graham of Farmington was escorted from the Statehouse by Capitol Police, but will not face charges.

The bill will now move forward to the full Senate for consideration.

the vote was 11-2-1

next up:

The legislation is expected to sail through the House, where Democrats far outnumber Republicans, but will likely encounter turbulence in the Senate, where Democrats hold a single seat majority.
