Last night, after an amazing three-hour debate, the New York State Assembly passed the marriage equality bill. More here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
Here is a video of Empire State Pride Agenda Exec. Dir. Alan Van Capelle after last night's vote...
The bill now goes to the Senate. Here's what Senate majority leader Joe Bruno had to say about the likelihood that the Senate would take up discussion of the legislation:
"We're not going to take a vote; we have too many other issues...We're not going to spend hours debating an issue that, you know, is not going to be of consequence."
Call [518-455-3191] or e-mail Senator Bruno urging him to allow the bill to come to the floor!
