The Rhode Island Senate is poised to vote on whether the state should join the rest of New England in allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry.
The Senate is expected to decide the contentious issue Wednesday.

Dozens of supporters cheered Tuesday as the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 7-4 to forward the bill to the Senate floor.
