MASON CITY, IA – With the Senate passing the same-sex marriage bill, many in Iowa are reacting to the news.
Area folks have been watching the coverage closely as Minnesota lawmakers send the bill to the Governor.
And local advocates, such as Dean Genth, say it’s nice that their rights in Iowa will be recognized in their neighboring state.
“So important to be able to equally recognize married couples from other states so that brought up in the debate today so that was really gratifying for me to hear,” said Genth.
Lisa Pope couldn’t agree more.
“Families are defined in different ways now a days and that’s just another type of family,” said Pope.
The law in Minnesota would take effect August 1st.
