New York Senate Majority Leader emerged from a four-hour conference on the marriage equality bill today and announced that no decision has been made, and Republicans will conference the measure again tomorrow.
Republican senators met for four hours Wednesday to discuss the marriage issue, and, as they emerged, they said they had not reached a consensus about bringing the bill to a vote. The State Assembly now plans to vote on the bill Wednesday afternoon, after Mr. Cuomo agreed to send the “message of necessity” required for an immediate vote because the bill language was only just formally introduced on Tuesday.
