Gov. Jodi Rell Makes It Official: CT Has Gay Marriage


Just four years ago this week, Connecticut’s Gov. Jodi Rell signed a bill legalizing civil unions for same-sex couples, notes the Hartford Courant. Now, she’s struck them down. Signing Senate Bill 889, Rell officially updates the state’s marriage laws to eliminate civil unions throughout the state — and automatically update any existing ones to full marriage by October 2010.
