Tears of a different sort flow after historic gay marriage vote
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Tears of sadness that rolled down faces of gay Minnesotans and their supporters two years ago became tears of joy today as Minnesota senators voted to allow same-sex couples to wed.
Senators voted 37-30 Monday to remove a state law that bans same-sex marriage. The vote followed a Thursday 75-59 House vote, leaving Gov. Mark Dayton's signature the only task remaining before gays can marry starting Aug. 1.
Dayton plans to sign the bill Tuesday.
