Anti-gay marriage amendment over state budget

As reported late Saturday night, the Minnesota House voted 70-62 to place a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage on the 2012 ballot.

The following video is a local CBS News affiliate in the twin cities covering that event Sunday. What is most telling though is the exchange between the reporter and the news anchor back in the studio following the same-sex marriage vote regarding the Minnesota House’s lack of passing a state budget which, unless the Governor steps in and calls for a special session of the legislature, means that Minnesota faces a state government shut down on July first.
