Gay marriage legislation clears House Judiciary Committee

From the Seattle Times

Posted by Andrew Garner

Legislation legalizing same-sex marriage cleared the House Judiciary Committee on Monday by a 7-to-5 vote.

Senate Bill 6239 is expected to go to a House floor vote Wednesday, for final passage.

House supporters say they have more than enough votes to approve the measure. Gov. Chris Gregoire supports the bill as well.
The measure passed the Senate last week. Opponents of the bill have promised a referendum ballot challenge if it makes it into law.
