Minnesota marriage bill has enough votes to pass Tuesday’s committee hearing

AP is reporting:

Nine of 17 members of the House Civil Law Committee tell The Associated Press they’ll vote yes at a hearing Tuesday. That’s enough to move the bill to the House floor and a vote by all 134 representatives.

Passage by the Senate Judiciary Committee also looks likely. Four of eight members say they’ll vote yes, and a fifth says she supports gay marriage but wouldn’t reveal her vote.

Over at NOMblog, they are reporting crickets.

So far, so good… I forget, are there any decent pre-counts of how the votes will go if this makes it to a floor vote?
