UPDATE: Marriage in Minnesota

UPDATE: Marriage in Minnesota

ufilogoThe 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.

    Beetle, if you re-read the post you will see that the hearing that was set for the 27th was canceled on the 25th. The only gay-marriage bill in MN is the one that will develop a committee that will study marriage laws and regulations.
