Dean Skelos Might Not Allow a Vote on Gay Marriage After All


New York State Senate Majority Leaders Dean Skelos, a Republican, has long said he’d allow a vote on a marriage equality bill and not block it from the floor, even though he himself is against it. He said his delegation should “vote with their conscience” on it, and he would not force them to vote as a group. But City Hall News reports he might be changing his tune — he will discuss the issue with his caucus before agreeing to bring it to the floor. [City Hall News]
