MN House To Vote On Same-Sex Marriage Bill Thursday

Thursday, May 9th, 2013 at 7:22 am

The Minnesota House is getting ready to vote on whether gay couples should be allowed to get married in the state.

Debate on the House floor is scheduled to start in the early afternoon Thursday. It could bring thousands to the Capitol, after both supporters and opponents of same-sex marriage urged their allies to descend on St. Paul.

DFL leaders in the House have told the Associated Press that they have the votes to pass the bill. If it’s successful, the Senate is scheduled to vote on the bill on Monday. Gov. Mark Dayton says he will sign the bill, which would allow weddings between same-sex couples starting on Aug. 1.
