Fuck Yeah, Minnesota!

If you know me, you know what it cost me to say that just now:

While legislation legalizing same-sex marriage remains stalled in the Illinois House and Gov. Pat Quinn calls for the House to vote on the bill before the spring legislative session ends, Minnesota today became the 12th state in the union to pass a marriage equality bill.

The Minnesota Senate approved the bill by a 37-30 vote, four days after the House passed the bill on a 75-59 vote. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton said he would sign the bill into law Tuesday evening.

Credit where it’s due, and let’s send those save-the-dates out now so that we can all make our summer plans.
