Update in NY: SSM Not Discussed Today (So Far), Senate Focusing on Pressing Issues Instead


An updated on what is happening in NY from the AP:

The Republican leader of New York’s Senate says gay marriage wasn’t discussed during meetings today with the governor and top Assembly leader.

National advocates and opponents are watching the marriage debate, waiting to see if New York will restart momentum or kill it the way it did two years ago.

Long Island Republican Dean Skelos says a “framework” for an agreement was reached Tuesday on rent control for New York City apartments and a statewide property tax cap.

Those two issues initially were lumped in with gay marriage as politicians from both parties worked for the issues closest to them.

It looks like so far the NY Senate is focusing on the priorities the majority of New Yorkers want them to focus on. Let's help keep them focused by calling on them not to redefine marriage!
