Good News/Bad News For Same Sex Marriage
June 15th, 2011
The Assembly intends to vote on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s same-sex marriage program bill today. Cuomo provided the chamber with a message of necessity and the bill is expected to pass.
On the other hand, Senate Republicans met as a conference to discuss whether to bring the bill to a vote in their chamber and after four hours they emerged with no news. “We will continue to conference the issue tomorrow,” Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos told reporters. The Senate had been scheduled to begin session at 11 this morning.By David King on June 15, 2011, 2:45 pm
