Minnesota House votes to allow gay marriage

Email

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota is a vote and a signature away from becoming the 12th state to allow gay marriage.

The House voted 75-59 today to eliminate an existing gay-marriage ban in state law. A Senate vote comes Monday and Gov. Mark Dayton says he will sign the bill.

Even Republicans who oppose gay marriage say Senate support for the bill is even stronger than in the House.

The vote caps years of attempts to allow same-sex marriages.
