NY Assembly Passes Marriage Equality Bill
Something new to be proud of during Pride Month!
The New York State Assembly voted to approve marriage equality legislation with bipartisan support. This is a first in the country. When MA legalized marriage for same-sex couples it did so through the courts (though the legislature recently protected that decision) and in CA where marriage equality legislation was passed and then vetoed by the governor, not a single Republican voted for the bill. 85 assembly members voted in favor of the legislation, including four Republicans, while 61 voted against. That’s the good news.
There is some bad news of course. (Isn’t there always?) Head on over to SitPS to read the rest.
