A second House Republican said Thursday that he will support Gov. Martin O'Malley's same-sex marriage bill.
The House of Delegates is poised to decide as early as Friday the future of same-sex marriage in Maryland, with some of the final, crucial votes to support the measure coming from once-undecided lawmakers who now say they want the issue put in the hands of voters.
His supporters gained three votes Thursday, when Ms. Beidle and Delegates John A. Olszewski Jr. and A. Wade Kach announced they will support the legislation, which would allow gay couples to enter state-recognized marriages while exempting religious institutions and faith-based groups from having to perform, accommodate or condone the unions.
