The Associated Students of Madison

Yesterday something happened at the University of Wisconsin that doesn't happen very often: ASM, our student government, passsed a resolution expressing its opposition to the gay marriage and civil unions ban that will be voted on this November. It is only the third time ASM has taken a stance on a political issue.

Their stance simply confirms how important this issue is to Wisconsin students and the widespread negative effects the ban could have if it passes. If this ban passes, it would severely limit the ability of every university in Wisconsin to recruit and retain the most talented students, faculty and staff. Students in Wisconsin are energized and committed to defeating this ban on civil unions and marriage come November, and ASM's resolution is just one more sign of that committment.

The Badger Herald
and The Daily Cardinal have coverage (here and here).
