GOP lawmakers may support gay marriage in Minnesota

Posted: Updated:

 Changes have been made to Minnesota's gay marriage bill that may make it easier for Republicans to support. 

 An amendment posted today from a GOP representative reframes the wording in Minnesota's marriage law.

 It would use the term "civil marriage" in all instances, whether couples are of the same or opposite genders.

 The change is meant to guarantee that religious organizations won't be penalized for refusing to perform gay marriages.
