Minnesota Senate scheduled to take up gay marriage bill at noon today
ST. PAUL — The bill to make gay marriage legal in Minnesota is taking its last step in the legislative process.
The Senate is scheduled to take up the bill Monday at noon for a debate and vote. The chamber's DFL leaders have said they expect it to pass. If it does, the bill goes to Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton who has promised to sign it.
The bill would make same-sex marriage available starting Aug. 1. Minnesota would become the 12th U.S. state to legalize gay marriage.
