Led by Rep. Karen Clark (DFL-62A), the Minneapolis delegation to the Minnesota House of Representatives helped pass a bill to legalize gay marriage in the state.
All 10 state representatives from Minneapolis voted for the bill, helping it pass on a 75-59 vote.
“It really is a wonderful moment to be here,” said Karen Clark, the bill’s chief author. “I do believe we are on the verge of changing Minnesota’s history.”
The bill is scheduled for a Monday vote in the DFL-controlled Senate. Sen. Scott Dibble, also of Minneapolis, is the author of the senate bill.
