Minnesota To See Marriage Equality Bill Introduced

[Minnesota State Senator Scott] Dibble says he has plans to introduce a bill to legalize gay marriage in Minnesota this week, according to the CBS affiliate in St. Paul.

'It’s just simply an amendment that removes the restriction that disallows some couples from getting married,' Dibble says. '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.'

Governor Mark Dayton has said he will sign a bill legalizing same-sex marriage if it passes both houses of the state legislature.
From almost banning marriage equality constitutionally to having a marriage equality bill introduced, a turn around of about three months. Good luck to the Minnesota legislature getting this passed.
