Senate to debate gay marriage bill Wednesday

OLYMPIA -- A debate of the same-sex marriage bill on the Senate floor is all but locked in for Wednesday, but the time is still up in the air.

The Senate has its regular session scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday, but that's in the middle of a busy committee hearing schedule, and SB 6239 is expected to generate a fair amount of debate. So it may be scheduled for an afternoon or evening session.

Once the debate starts, it could go for a while.
