In the legislative update sent by Senator Douglas J.J. Peters who happens to also be the chair of the Prince George’s County Senate Delegation talks about his efforts on home foreclosure but didn’t mention at all his vote against the gay marriage bill in the senate or give any explanation on why he voted that way.
