Washington State Lawmakers Approve Gay Marriage Bill

The Washington House passed a bill today to allow same-sex couples to wed. The state Senate approved the measure last week. Democratic Governor Chris Gregoire is expected to sign the measure into law next week.

The law goes into effect in ninety days.

As per usual, bigoted assholes are expected to fight to have the law overturned.
