    So how does this work? Say opponents get 60 votes, does it go to the president or what?

    If I understand it correctly in order to over turn this a bill saying "DC has no idea what they are doing, marriage quality sux yo" has to pass the house and senate and then be signed by the president.

    So, it is a long shot for it not to be law after the 30 day review period.

    Washington DC has passed gay marriage into law, this is great news given the recent defeats in both Maine and New York. Hopefully the opposition will have no viable way to prevent this marriage equality from becoming law in the nation's capital and hopefully members of Congress will stay out of it anf let Washington DC decide for itself on what should be the law.
