    We have Democratic governor and AG happy to comply, but we also passed a nasty anti-equal marriage amendment to our state constitution in '04. It forbids not only recognition of same-sex marriages, but also legal recognition of all "marriage-like" arrangements such as civil unions and even heterosexual domestic partnerships (ironic coming from a state where common law marriage is still on the books).

    So, even though I've argued that we are purple-and-bluing even on LGBT righs issues, I was worried about our compliance on this. Very relieved not to be on this list!
