WA Lege Day 18: Senate panel to vote on gay marriage bill

OLYMPIA -- The Senate Government Operations is scheduled to vote this morning on the proposal that would allow same-sex marriage in Washington.

The bill was the subject of two contentious committee hearings on Monday, one in Senate Government Ops and the other in House Judiciary. The Senate panel is set to "exec" the bill -- that is, vote on it in executive session after holding public hearings on other bills -- in a hearing that started at 10 a.m. We'll update when the vote comes up.

House Judiciary is expected to exec its version of the bill next week.

Both bills are expected to clear their committees and be sent to the full chambers for debates.
