Via Towleroad, it appears that marriage equality may not be on the New York Senate’s final agenda: “Skelos said there is still no agreement on whether to bring same-sex marriage to a vote in his chamber. The bill passed the Assembly last week 80-63, and has the public support of 31 senators — one shy of the tally needed for passage. Skelos said ‘we have not finalized the language in terms of religious protections’ some senators are seeking, and as such, a vote has not been scheduled.”
