Minnesota governor: I would sign marriage-equality bill

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Gov. Mark Dayton said this week that he would sign a marriage-equality bill into law should one ever hit his desk.

Minnesotans last month rejected Proposition 32, which would have added a state constitutional ban against same-sex marriage.

Dayton told Minnesota Public Radio that is was not sure whether the state Legislature would take up the issue.

"I hope we're going to get to that point,” Dayton said. “The younger generation is broadly accepting of that change and we'll get there, it's just a question of when."
