A gay marriage site that documents the views of state governors and federal lawmakers on the issue will begin adding state lawmakers to the list.

After creating a comprehensive online database of all 50 governors, 100 senators and 435 representatives, StatesThatAllowGayMarriage.com is ready to add state lawmakers to their list.

Representatives from the website said Thursday the action was important because most of the “expansions of equal marriage rights have taken place at the state level.”

“Until StatesThatAllowGayMarriage.com launched, there was no one place you could go to find this information,” Michael Zuyus, founder of the website, said. “We want to make it easy for people to get the information they need in order to support candidates who will vote for marriage rights in their state.”

Zuyus said the website will begin with New Jersey, Rhode Island and Maine, states with an ongoing vigorous debate on gay marriage.

In New Jersey, gay couples are suing for the right to marry after lawmakers rejected a gay marriage bill in January. Voters in Maine repealed last November a gay marriage law approved by lawmakers. And gay marriage is a pivotal gubernatorial issue in Rhode Island, where gay activists are working overtime to put a supporter in the Governor's Mansion.
