The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the constitutional amendment legislation today and its sponsors say they have enough votes for it to pass.
With Minnesota facing a huge budget shortfall, the legislature should be focused on creating jobs and the economy. Will you send a message to your Representative and Senator asking them to oppose anti-gay constitutional amendments?
We're hearing from our allies in the legislature that our opponents - led by the anti-gay Minnesota Family Council - are bombarding them with lies about same-sex couples and their families.
