The vote was 61-132 in favor of advancing the proposed constitutional amendment, but only 50 votes were needed to move it to a second constitutional convention this year. A "yes" vote was in favor of the ballot question; a "no" vote was against it.First Vote 61Y-132N

Today, 62 lawmakers voted in a state Constitutional Convention to allow a ballot initiative banning gay marriage in the state of Massachusetts.

I propose a new ballot initiative to ban all 62 of these lawmakers from getting married in Massachusetts. Those already married would have their marriages converted to Civil Unions with all state and federal rights accorded to them.

Update - 3 Jan 2007, 6:45 PM
Corrected: First vote: 61 voted yes; second vote 62 voted yes.

I also recommend that the 170,000 people who signed the petition putting anti-gay marriage amendment on the ballot voluntarily give up their right to be married in Massachusetts.
