New Jersey Governor Christie Vetoes Same-Sex Marriage Bill

Posted by | February 17, 2012 17:21 | Filed under: Top Stories

As promised, Governor Chris Christie has vetoed New Jersey’s same-sex marriage bill after it passed both houses of the legislature.

The Republican governor returned the bill to the Legislature, saying he wants voters to decide whether New Jersey changes the definition of marriage.

Democratic lawmakers say it’s a civil rights issue that shouldn’t be put up for a public vote.

Lawmakers have until the end of the January 2014 legislative session to override the veto.
