N.J. Senate passes same-sex marriage bill

Legislation that would let gay couples marry in New Jersey was passed Monday by the state Senate but would need to add three supporters to overcome Gov. Chris Christie’s promised veto. The Senate passed the bill, 24-16, adding 10 supporters since the bill failed 14-20 in January 2010. If the Assembly passes the bill, Thursday, it would head to Christie, who has said he will veto it. Such a veto could be overridden by a two-thirds vote in each house of the Legislature, meaning 27 votes in the Senate, any time through January 2014. http://on.cpsj.com/xLImA0
