Gay Marriage In New York, We Still Have To Wait

Written by 

The legalization of the marriage in New York will still wait a little bit, republicans senators didn't vote yet.

The fact that the republicans discuss a lot before to vote is not inevitably negative. It is even all the opposite. The equality of the marriage is a priority in the sessions, so now we just have to wait and see.

The "things continue to progress in a satisfactory way," said Brian Ellner, higher strategist of New York for the human rights campaign, one of the five members of the coalition. "There are many legislative articles. The most important thing is to continue to work hard. People should continue to contact their senators and to invite them to support the marriage equality."

The vote should happened yesterday (Wednesday) but it didn't. A significant and positive thing for the gay marriage bill in New York is that the republican Senate majority leader, Dean Skelo, said Thursday that he would present the measure to his conference to decide when the vote will be scheduled.
