Today, the Vermont Senate and House will consider whether to override Governor Douglas' veto of the same-sex marriage bill. Shay Totten is at the Statehouse covering the proceedings on Twitter.

A sample of his posts so far:

  • Speaker ShapSmith said moments ago, "this will be the smallest needle I've everthreaded" if veto override is successful #vtfreetomarry
  • #vt Senators are beginning to enter the chamber - this first veto should be quick (famous last words) #vtfreetomarry
  • VT Senate is now in session and are beginning the orders of the day #vtfreetomarry

You can also listen to live coverage on VPR. They'll be covering the topic on Vermont Edition today, too.

And the Burlington Free Press has live video, and a live blog hosting a chat.

Here's a marriage supporter blogging at the RU12? Community Center site.
