SEATTLE - A group of Washington lawmakers introduced a bill on Friday to legalize same-sex marriage, days after Governor Christine Gregoire announced her support for the unions.

The bill was introduced in the Democratic-controlled Senate and has the backing of 21 Democrats and two Republicans, just two votes short of a majority in the 49-member chamber. If it is approved, the measure would then head to the House, where Democrats have a larger majority.

In her state of the state address on Tuesday, Gregoire, a Democrat in her final year in office, said, "It is time for marriage equality... Let's tell the children of our same-sex couples that their parents' relationship is equal to all others in the state."
