DOVER, Del. - The Delaware senate approved a bill legalizing gay marriage on Tuesday, paving the way for it to become the 11th US state to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples.

The state's lower house has already approved the measure. The governor has said he will sign it into law.

Delaware's vote follows a successful effort to legalize same-sex marriage in Rhode Island last Friday. Gay marriage bills are also under consideration in Minnesota and Illinois.
