Washington Gay Marriage
Rep. Jamie Pedersen, D-Seattle, center, is congratulated by Dave Upthegrove, D-Des Moines, left, and Drew Hansen, D-Kitsap County, after the House voted to legalize gay marriage in Washington state Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2012, in Olympia, Wash. The action comes a day after a federal appeals court declared California's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, saying it was a violation of the civil rights of gay and lesbian couples. Gregoire is likely to sign the bill next week. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
