Maryland senators should expect a long week ahead of debate on same-sex marriage, the chamber’s president said Thursday.”You might want to keep your evenings open and clear your schedule next weekend,” Senate President Thomas v. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert) told his colleagues before adjourning for the day.
With opponents likely to attempt a filibuster, Miller said he plans to “let everyone have their say” before bringing a motion to the floor to cut off debate.
The final vote on the bill is expected to be very close. A Post tally published this week showed 24 senators having said they would support the bill — the bare minimum needed for passage.
The tally includes Sen. Joan Carter Conway (D-Baltimore), who said in an interview last week that she would vote for the bill if she were the deciding vote. Conway has been more equivocal in interviews with other publications, saying she is “still praying” over what to do.
In a brief interview Thursday, Conway told The Post that she is “going to do the right thing” but would not elaborate on what that is.
…and then think about what we’re expected to believe regarding the post-gay-marriage-bill prospects for even the worthless, public accommodations-free bill being pushed by the Marriage Derangement Syndrome sufferers.
