ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota's Senate is scheduled to start its debate on the bill to legalize gay marriage on Monday at noon.

A Senate DFL spokesman announced the plans Friday. The Senate is the final legislative hurdle for the bill, and its passage there would send the bill to Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton for his signature.

Dayton says he will sign the bill. It would make gay marriage legal in the state starting Aug. 1. The House passed the bill Thursday by a vote of 75-59.
