Three Dems For Gay Marriage
June 13th, 2011

Sens. Joseph Addabbo, Shirley Huntley and Carl Kruger announced today that they support gay marriage. That means 29 of 30 Democrats now support gay marriage while it remains unclear exactly where the Republicans stand.

The Post reported this morning that seven Republicans have told Gov. Andrew Cuomo that they support gay marriage. But some of the legislators cited in the story have told other reporters that they oppose gay marriage.

Cuomo told reporters at a conference this afternoon that passage of the bill is up to the Senate Republicans. Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos said he plans to discuss the bill with his conference tomorrow.

Cuomo plans to meet with gay marriage advocates today and then decide whether to introduce the bill. The bill would have to come later this week unless the governor issued a letter of necessity. Some legislators say they expect session to be over by Friday even though session is scheduled to go til next Monday. There is so much many issues left to be hashed out this year that it seems unlikely legislators will get an early exit. But who knows–this is Albany.
