Today D.C. is expected to vote on same-sex marriage. 

On December 1 the city council overwhelmingly passed the measure in a first reading. If passed today, the measure will go to Mayor Adrian Fenty who has said he will sign the bill. The measure would then go to Congress for a 30-day review period. Congress does have the ability to overturn laws created by the District city council, but it is widely considered the Democratic majority will not block the bill. 
Stay tuned for updates!
