Gov. Mark Dayton Signs Same-Sex Marriage Law

Tuesday at 5 p.m., Gov. Mark Dayton signed into law the bill legalizing same-sex marriage in Minnesota. A large crowd — part of it sheltering under shade trees in the 90-degree heat — watched Dayton sign the historic marriage rights legislation on the south steps of the Capitol in St. Paul.

The law will take effect on August 1.
