Video: Green Mountain debate

by Jeremy Hooper

They packed 'em in last night at the Vermont State House, where locals gathered to speak both for and against a bill that would grant basic fairness to same-sex couples. Here's an overwhelming amount of video from the proceedings, courtesy of VT Freedom to Marry:
