NY State Senate should vote on marriage equality tomorrow

The New York State Senate is convening tomorrow. Governor Paterson wants them to take a vote on marriage equality and he’s been talking it up. Corey Johnson and Andy Towle from Towleroad posted an interview with the Governor yesterday. And, Kerry Eleveld posted her interview with the Governor today.

The pressure is starting to build for the Senate to take the vote and approve marriage. The Assembly already passed the bill in May.

New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn gave a powerful statement in support of marriage equality today:
