State Senate Won’t Vote on Gay Marriage


So, that same-sex marriage bill Gov. Paterson was insisting the State Senate vote on? They’re not going to. Disagreements over how to shore up a pesky $3 billion budget deficit have taken priority and Democrats aren’t sure they have enough votes to pass the bill anyway. Paterson says he still hopes the Senate will vote on it next week. We won’t hold our breath.
