|Description||Gov. Chris Gregoire on Wednesday is expected to publicly back efforts to make Washington the seventh state to legalize marriage for lesbian and gay couples. |
Sources close to the discussions said the governor will support gay-marriage legislation during the session that starts Monday.
Gregoire has supported giving gay and lesbian partners the same rights that married couples have today, but has never endorsed same-sex marriage publicly.
