O’Malley to sponsor gay marriage legislation

ANNAPOLIS — Gov. Martin O’Malley says he will sponsor gay marriage legislation.

The Democrat made the announcement Friday at a news conference to discuss how he will support legislation in the next regular session of the General Assembly in January.

The governor has said he has been looking at how New York approved legislation that included protections for religious freedom.

Same-sex marriage legislation passed the Maryland Senate this year, but it stalled in the House of Delegates.
