Senate plans dinnertime debate on same-sex marriage bill
How long the proceedings will last depends a lot on how many amendments are proposed. In the end, it is expected to pass as 25 of the chamber's 49 senators are on record supporting the bill.
As of this morning, there are two amendments posted online and both are from conservative Democrats.
One amendment would require the bill be placed on the ballot for voters to ratify or reject. It came from Sen. Brian Hatfield, D-Raymond, who is uncommitted.
TVW will televise the debate live. It also will provide live coverage online on its web site.
