Senate to vote on same-sex marriage
ST. PAUL -- A Minnesota Senate committee voted 5-3 today to move forward with a bill that would legalize same-sex marriage in Minnesota.
"This is about family," bill author Sen. Scott Dibble, DFL-Minneapolis, said. "We are not redefining anything."
The Judiciary Committee sent the bill to the full Senate, though Democratic leadership has said setting the state budget will come before addressing policy issues such as gay marriage.
