Governor Chafee Signs Executive Order Recognizing gay marriage performed outside Rhode Island

I applaud the Governor for taking such a bold move. Of course I knew he was in our camp when he was running for Governor a couple of years ago.

That said, I’m majorly irked by this. Why? Because I did a pro forma analysis of tax revenue using estimates of the number of same sex couples in RI.

The state, by recognizing same sex marriages performed out of state will stand to lose $2.1 Million dollars a year in tax revenues.

That is a significant chunk of change. So to Speaker Fox, and Senate President Paiva-Weed I say the following:

GET YOUR FUCKING HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES AND PASS MARRIAGE EQUALITY IN RI!”
