"New York Assembly Passes Marriage Equality Bill"

Today, the New York Assembly passed a bill that would legalize same-sex marriage by a vote of 80-63. Though the Assembly has passed such a bill twice before, this is the first time expectations are high that the Senate will pass it as well. After four hours of conferencing today, the Senate will resume discussion tomorrow about bringing the bill to a vote. As of this post, equality has 31 of the 32 Senate votes it needs to pass.
