$1.8 Million: Amount Spent On Final Push For Marriage Equality In New York

“The final push by gay-rights groups to legalize same-sex marriage in New York now has a price tag: $1.8 million,” the New York Times reports. “That was what New Yorkers United for Marriage, the coalition of advocacy groups that helped persuade the Legislature last month to allow gay couples to wed, spent on lobbying in May and June, according to a new disclosure filing.” Not surprisingly, opponents of the law — including the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) — have not yet posted their disclosures.
