Gov. Douglas (R) of VT is now threatening to veto the bill that permits marriage for LGBTQ people in VT. Even though he could've said something earlier, before it went before the Senate and House for a vote (still waiting for the House but looking like a super majority passage), he waited until now.
He is saying that the state should focus on the economy.
But by vetoing the bill, the legislature will focus on this threat of a veto by continuing the debate, overriding (hopefully) the veto.
