Blight on historical remembrance advances in Mass

[writer sips glass of water and clears throat] Okay, where was I? Oh yea -- Should the measure receive 50 affirmative votes in the next legislative session, it will go to the state's voters in the 2008 election. Then if approved by the public, it would strip gay marriage rights from the one state where they are currently in place.

**UPDATE: Vote being reconsidered? [G-A-Y]
