OLYMPIA, Wash. - One more vote by the full Washington House is all that remains before same-sex marriage goes to the governor's desk in Olympia. In a narrow vote Monday, a House committee moved the gay marriage bill forward. A floor vote could come as early as Wednesday night.
In testimony Monday, gay rights activist Charleen Strong introduced a panel of lawmakers to her newborn daughter.
"And it is my hope that she will know that her moms have the right to be married and to be a family, just as many other Washington families have," Strong said.
