This news puts Gov. Chafee on the defensive when it comes to his (unconstitutional) threats to veto a referendum.
Unlike the legislation that’s scheduled for a vote by the House Thursday, Ciccone’s would not legalize same-sex marriage.
Rather, it would ask voters if they want it to amend the state Constitution so that it defines marriage as “the lawful union of one man and one woman.”
Remember to come to the State House today at 3pm to join the chorus of voices for traditional marriage.
