One More Vote For Gay Weddings In New York
New York is on the verge of becoming the sixth state to allow gay marriage. Gov Cuomo introduced the bill in both chambers on Tuesday. In an effort to pacify Republicans, the bill has several stipulations that exempt religious institution from having to oblige or provide facilities for gay weddings.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has pushed for gay marriage, garnishing widespread support from Democrats in the State Assembly. However, Republicans, who control the State Senate, have been an obstacle in his goal. But, Republicans are coming around to the idea. Tuesday, two Republican state senators gave their support to Gov. Cuomo’s gay marriage bill. Thirty-one Republicans support the bill.
