A group of bipartisan legislators plan to introduce a marriage equality bill at the state capitol tomorrow, Fox 9 reports:
The historic legislation, co-authored by Republican Sen. Branden Petersen, will be formally introduced on Thursday. Petersen told The Star Tribune he planned to co-sponsor the bill in order to do “the right thing,” adding that he is fully prepared to accept losing his seat for bucking his party on the issue. “I have a certain amount of peace about that,” Petersen told the Star Tribune. “I will let the chips fall where they may.”
Talk about the courage of your convictions – let’s support Senator Petersen when his re-election rolls around.
