Gay Marriage Bill Introduced At State Capitol

Posted: Updated:
St. Paul, MN -

Minnesota lawmakers have launched a push to allow gay marriage in the state beginning this summer. Sponsors of the gay marriage bill aim to repeal Minnesota's 1997 law that prohibited marriage between couples of the same sex. They say the bill will exempt churches from being forced to perform same-sex weddings. Gov. Mark Dayton says he will sign the bill if it reaches him. Weddings could commence in August.
