New York to Consider Same-Sex Marriage Today

The New York senate via the direction of Governor David Patterson will hear the same-sex marriage bill today at 3pm. The bill was supposed to be heard yesterday but the republicans did not show up for a vote. Today both the Republicans and Democrats are promising to attend the session. With no majority control over the senate due to the 31-31 democrat and republican split, there is no telling if the bill will finally reach a vote or what the outcome may ultimately be.

Be sure to contact your state senator and tell them to support marriage equality.

Call your senator before 3 p.m. today via the senate switchboard at 518-455-2800

They adjourned before they considered any legislation. The marriage bill is still alive and hopefully will get heard when the senate decides who is the leader. Keep pressuring them to hear the marriage bill.
