Minnesota becomes 12th state to approve same sex marriage


Gay couples will be permitted to wed in Minnesota starting in August, making it the 12th state to permit same-sex marriage and the first in the Midwest to take such a step outside of a court ruling.

The State Senate, controlled by Democrats, voted 37 to 30 on Monday to allow same-sex marriages, after approval by the State House last week. Gov. Mark Dayton, also a Democrat, had urged lawmakers to pass the measure and said he would sign the bill on Tuesday afternoon.

I know the day will come here in Wisconsin when equality for all our citizens is enshrined in our state’s constitution, because bigotry should not be enshrined in our state’s constitution.
