DC Council Yes to Same-sex Marriage


The Washington, D.C., council has voted 11 to 2 to legalize same-sex marriage in the district.

The council will have to take a second vote in two weeks before the bill goes to Mayor Adrian M. Fenty.

Fenty has previously pledged to sign the bill, after which Congress will have 30 legislative days in which it can intervene before the bill becomes law.

Marion Barry and Yvette Alexander were the only two council members to vote against the bill.
