The Marriage and Family Protection Act, the first marriage equality bill ever introduced in the Minnesota legislature is making a return run in 2009. Once again, we are fortunate to have Senator John Marty and Representative Phyllis Kahn carrying the bill. The bill has to be reintroduced this session because it is the first year of the biennium. I have been at the Capitol seeking co-sponsors since the bill came back from the Revisor earlier this month. It has been difficult finding people at the Capitol because it's an off time but so far we have 3 senators signed on, out of a possible 5, and 10 representatives. Among those signed on are, Senator Scott Dibble and Representative Karen Clark. There are more people who have pledged to sign on that I just haven't run into yet. I will keep at it.
