Take Action for Marriage Equality in New York

Governor David Patterson has announced the introduction of a marriage equality bill within New York state. A previous bill under governor Eliot Spitzer passed the state house but was not allowed to come up for a vote in the then republican controlled senate.

New York now needs to pass the bill again within the assembly and to garner enough votes to pass the bill within the senate. The governor will then sign the bill into law making New York the next state to have full marriage rights for same-sex couples.

Yay, Governor Patterson.
I live in New York (and have for all of my life) and I seriously will be absolutely stoked, beyond explanation if this becomes a reality.
I'm not getting my hopes up, but you have to commend the man for at least trying.
