Vermont Became the First State to Legalize Same-Gender Marriage By Legislative Action. Unlike other states which was by a court ruling. GOP Governor Jim Douglas had promised to veto the gay marriage bill, which he did bill on Monday. However, the Senate overrode the Governor with a 23 to 5 vote and House vote was 100 to 49, with not a single vote to spare. The law goes into effect Sept. 1, 2009
