Gov. Cuomo to LGBT Leaders: I Expect Vote on SSM in ‘6 to 8 Weeks or Maybe Sooner’


From a New York Magazine blog:

According to Marriage Equality New York head Ron Zacchi, Governor Cuomo has told state LGBT leaders he expects a vote on a marriage-equality bill in the State Senate in "six to eight weeks, or maybe sooner."

Even though the math doesn't look good for such a bill's passage (advocates would need to swing a small number of Republicans, all of whom voted against the bill last time), Cuomo is fresh off strong-arming the state legislature into a budget deal, and he still has sky-high popularity strengthening his hand.
