D.C. Gay Marriage Bill Expected To Pass Council Vote

12/14/09 NPR:
A bill legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington, D.C., is expected to pass a City Council vote on Tuesday ... The mayor has already committed to signing the bill, but opponents are vowing not to give up the fight against it. And because laws in the District of Columbia are subject to congressional review, even if the bill passes on Tuesday, it won't be too late for opponents to lobby for it to be overturned ... It would take a joint resolution of Congress, signed by the president, to overturn the measure once it becomes law. And advocates don't believe that will happen.
