ST. PAUL -- Minnesota House leaders expect representatives to approve gay marriage Thursday, with the Senate following in the next few days.


The vote being scheduled for Thursday means House Democratic leaders think they have the vote to pass the measure. House Speaker Paul Thissen, DFL-Minneapolis, has said for months that he will not bring the measure up for a full House vote unless he knows the votes are there.
