From the Maryland Catholic Conference:
Voting records are now available online for two new laws, signed into law recently by Gov. O'Malley, that undermine the legal status of marriage.
Senate Bill 566 grants marriage equivalency to domestic partners for the purpose of medical decision making.
Senate Bill 597 grants marriage equivalency to domestic partners for the purpose of exemption from recordation and transfer taxes.
Please click here to see the grid of how your state lawmakers voted on both SB 566 and SB 597.
The grid can be searched by legislators' last name or district. Click here to find out what district you live in .
Once you find out how your state lawmakers voted, please click the link on their last names in the grid to e-mail them:
• If your lawmakers voted "yes" on SB 566 and SB 597, tell them that you're disappointed in their vote and encourage them to uphold marriage in the future.
• If your lawmakers voted "no" on SB 566 and SB 597, thank them and tell them you support their position in favor of traditional marriage.
However and most important, DON'T VOTE FOR THEM IN THE NEXT ELECTION! (This is my opinion, and not the MD Catholic Conference's -- but it should be!)
