OLYMPIA, Wash (Reuters) – The Washington state Senate passed legislation on Wednesday night to legalize gay marriage, moving the state closer to joining six other U.S. states and Washington, D.C. in allowing same-sex nuptials.

The 28-21 vote in favor of the measure – three more votes than needed for passage – sent it on to the state’s House of Representatives, where the bill is expected to win swift approval by a comfortable margin as early as next week.
