Will Minnesota soon be legalizing same-sex marriage??
It could happen. Minnesota State Senator Scott Dibble plans to introduce marriage equality legislation this week!
Details after the jump.
According to WCCO CBS Minnesota:
"Dibble believes this legislation has the momentum to pass after voters defeated a constitutional amendment that would’ve strengthened the existing gay marriage ban.
'It’s just simply an amendment that removes the restriction that disallows some couples from getting married,' Dibble said. “My strong sense, even from folks in greater Minnesota, is that they’re comfortable with this, they know that Minnesota has changed a lot and is continuing to change at a very rapid pace.'
State Representative Karen Clark is expected to introduce a similar bill in the House. Neither she nor Dibble expect a vote on their bills until later this session after the Minnesota Legislature passes budget bills."
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has said he will sign marriage equality into law if the bill crosses his desk.
Let's make it happen, folks!
