Gay legislators impact civil unions debate

In this Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2010 file photo, Rhode Island House Majority Leader Gordon Fox, D-Providence, center, speaks with fellow lawmakers during a session in the House Chamber, at the Statehouse, in Providence, R.I. In Rhode Island, legislation to legalize same-sex marriage has failed in previous years, but advocates are optimistic this year because the new governor, independent Lincoln Chafee, is supportive. One of the bill's co-sponsors is Democratic House Speaker Fox, who is gay; he has not yet set a timetable for voting on the bill. (AP Photo/Steven Senne, File)
