Governor Mark Dayton has indicated he will sign a marriage equality bill into law if it were to reach his desk
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has said he will sign a marriage equality law if it comes across his desk.
Marriage equality advocates are celebrating after Minnesota lawmakers have unveiled a new bill.
Sponsors of the same-sex marriage bill are aiming to repeal the outright 1997 ban prohibiting marriage for gay couples.
At a news conference today (27 February), co-author of the bill Scott Dibble spoke out in favor of marriage equality.
‘We are all human beings equal in the eyes of God,’ he said. ‘We’re affirming things that we all prize, love at the center of marriage.’
It is a bi-partisan bill, with Republican Senator Branden Peterson publicly supporting marriage equality in Minnesota
