Minnesota Considering Marriage Equality/ Civil Union Bills

From The Advocate:

A trio of bills extending marriage rights to same-sex couples were formally heard Monday by a Minnesota house of representatives committee.

One bill proposes the creation of civil union contracts for both same-sex and opposite-sex couples, while another would recognize gay marriages from other states. A third bill calls for full marriage equality by “removing gender-based terminology in existing state statute,” Politics in Minnesota reported.

Per Marriage Equality Minnesota, a poll conducted in 2009 showed that 61% of the state supported marriage equality.

Good luck, Minnesota!
