There was one surprise proposal in the California State Assembly this week that needed just one "yes" vote to pass.

Assemblyman Luis Alejo (D-Watsonville) grabbed the mic on the Assembly floor on Monday and proposed to his girlfriend of seven years.

She thought he had invited her just to observe for the day. Republicans and Democrats alike roared in approval when she said yes.
