Gay marriage bill clears first hurdle in Minnesota

Posted: Updated:

 The bill to legalize gay marriage in Minnesota has enough votes to clear its first hurdle in the House.

 Nine of the house civil law committee's 17 members said they'd vote yes at a hearing today.

 That's enough to move the bill to the House floor.

 Passage by the Senate Judiciary Committee also looks likely.
 
 Four of eight members say they'll vote yes and a fifth says she supports gay marriage but wouldn't reveal her vote.
