Sen. Ed Murray, left, D-Seattle, is embraced by Rep. Jamie Pedersen, D-Seattle, after House legislators 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.
