Gay Marriage Signed Into Law in Washington

Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire (D) signed landmark legislation legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington state, the Seattle Times reports.

"The historic event brings Washington in line with six other states and the District of Columbia, which allow gays to marry."

"Opponents of same-sex marriage intended to quickly file a referendum aimed at repealing the law, and if they are able to collect enough valid signatures -- 120,577 -- between now and June 6, the law will be put on hold until the November election."
