OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The state Senate is set to vote on a measure that would legalize gay marriage in Washington.

The bill is not expected to come up for a vote until late afternoon or early evening Wednesday. It is expected to pass in the Senate with at least 25 votes, the number needed for approval. If passed by the Senate, the measure moves to the House, where it already has enough support. Gov. Chris Gregoire says she will sign it into law if passed.

Opponents of same-sex marriage have already promised a referendum battle at the ballot if the Legislature passes the bill and it’s signed into law.

Washington state has had a domestic partnership law since 2007, and an “everything but marriage” expansion of the domestic partnership law since 2009.
