TODAY: MN House Marriage Vote
UPDATE: Bill PASSES 75-59!!!

The House is scheduled to begin today's session at  noon local time. (1PM NYC-time).  Watch live here.
House Speaker Paul Thissen had said he would not put the measure to the full House if leaders did not believe it had the support to pass. It is unclear if any Republicans will support the bill, but Democrats hold a 73-61 majority. Minnesota for Marriage, a group opposed to the bill, has called for prayer and protest on Thursday at the state Capitol in St. Paul, while Minnesotans United for All Families has asked bill supporters to wear orange and blue for the vote.
Keep an eye out for Kalley Yanta!
UPDATE: Things are about to start. Local television is also live-streaming the proceedings.
