Senate Votes for Marriage Equity

The Minnesota Senate has approved a bill that will allow same-sex marriage in Minnesota.   The final vote was 37 to 30. 

With the approval that came in the House of Representatives last week, the legislative work is now done and the bill will become law with Governor Mark Dayton’s signature.

KFAI’s Christina Cerruti and Dixie Triechel were at the capitol as the Senate debated and people on both sides of the issue gathered around. 

We’ll hear some of the voices from yesterday afternoon, starting with the bill’s Senate author, Senator Scott Dibble of Minneapolis.
