R.I. House to vote on gay marriage bill

PROVIDENCE — Legislation to allow gay marriage in Rhode Island is headed for a vote in the state House of Representatives after being unanimously endorsed Tuesday by a legislative committee.

The full House is expected to debate and vote on same-sex marriage Thursday. Though gay marriage bills have been introduced for years, it will be the first time either chamber of the General Assembly will vote on the matter.
