RI gay marriage bill headed to final vote

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island will likely become the nation's 10th state to allow same-sex marriage.

A legislative panel voted Tuesday to forward same-sex marriage legislation to the full House for a final - and largely procedural - vote Thursday.

The Senate passed the bill by a comfortable margin last week and the House overwhelmingly passed an earlier version of the bill in January.
