Watch: Senate, House committees vote on gay marriage
Today's hearings could be a crucial step in answering that question.
Update [2:55]: After almost three hours of testimony and discussion, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed the bill with a 5-3 vote. The House committee will vote later this evening.
It's a pivotal day in Minnesota's fight over the legalization of same-sex marriage.
The House Civil Law Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee will both hear testimony and eventually take up votes on gay marriage bills today, and if the AP has done its math correctly, the smart money is on both bills moving forward.
If they do pass the committees, the bills will move toward full votes in the House and Senate, which would likely take place in a couple months.
The Senate committee will meet at noon. The House committee began its session early today and adjourned at 10 a.m., and will pick back up again at 6 p.m.
