Minnesota House leadership just announced a vote on the marriage equality bill for Thursday, signaling a huge coming victory soon in the state. With just two weeks left before the end of session this move signals significant momentum moving into the final days.
It’s been widely known that the House would be the tougher chamber as the Senate has said they have had the votes for some time. House leadership has said they would not take up the bill unless the votes were there, meaning we are extremely confident of the outcome on Thursday. Victory in the House all but assures marriage equality will be coming to Minnesota soon.
Stay tuned for more updates as history continues to happen here on the ground in Minnesota!
