MN Governor: I'd Sign A Marriage Bill

Democratic Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton today told NPR that he will sign a marriage equality bill should one reach his desk. 
When asked about legalizing same-sex marriage after Minnesotans defeated a constitutional amendment defining marriage as only between a man and a woman, Dayton said he would sign a bill if it comes to him. But he said he's unsure if the Legislature is ready to consider the issue. "I hope we're going to get to that point. The younger generation is broadly accepting of that change and we'll get there, it's just a question of when," he said.
Last year Dayton symbolically vetoed Minnesota's ultimately failed ballot measure to place a ban on same-sex marriage in the state constitution.
