Negotiators Say ‘A Deal Is Near’ On Marriage Equality In New York

Via New York Post: “Negotiators for the Republican-run Senate privately admitted that a deal is near after aides spent the Father’s Day weekend ironing out language to appease ‘religious liberty’ concerns that have been raised by several fence-sitting GOP senators. And public pressure has reached a tipping point, as about 200 supporters of the bill held two raucous rallies near Union Square yesterday.” The vote will likely take place today.
