27 Mar UPDATE: Marriage in Minnesota
The UFI State Chapter Director from Minnesota reports:
Friday, March 27th, the Civil Justice committee in the MN House was scheduled to hear 4 bills concerning civil unions (HF999), ending of DOMA laws (HF893), recognizing same-sex marriages from other states (HF1740) and a proposed amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman (HF 1871).
On March 25th the committee canceled hearing those four bills and added the bill, HF 1655 which is a bill to develop a committee to study marriage laws and regulations in Minnesota and how they may discriminate or affect economic conditions.
Bottom Line: Marriage will not be voted on in Minnesota this year.
