Minnesota to Legalize Gay Marriage

Minnesota Will Become the 12th State to Legalize Gay Marriage

Make it an even dozen. Minnesota is set to become the 12th state in the nation to allow gays and lesbians to wed. The Star Tribune with the details from this afternoon's vote in the statehouse:

After about 4 hours of debate, the Minnesota Senate has voted 37-30 to approve a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in the state. The House approved the measure 75-59 last Thursday. The bill will now head to Gov. Mark Dayton, who is likely to sign it into law Tuesday.

Once it becomes official—Dayton has made it clear that he will sign it when it reaches his desk—the North Star State will join 11 others that have already legalized same sex marriage: Delaware, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Iowa, Maryland, New York, and Washington state, along with the District of Columbia.
