A Maryland lawmaker wants the state to license same-sex couples to wed, but it will cost $250.
Larry Hogan has asked lawmakers to approve a bill that would allow couples to legally marry at the state’s historic Civil War battlefield at Gettysburg.
Hogan said Monday he’s exploring the issue with a group of conservative lawmakers.
The bill would create a ceremony in Gettysburg that would last 10 minutes, not just a few minutes.
The governor has not set a date for its enactment.
“I want to be sure that the Civil War remains the center of our national conversation,” Hogan said at a news conference Monday.
The Civil War marked the end of the U.S. government and the beginning of the American Revolution.
