The New York state assembly passed a gay marriage bill last night, and Governor Paterson has said he’ll sign it if it gets to him. Before that happens, it has to pass the state senate, where a gay marriage bill has failed before.
If you could take a minute and write or call your state senator and ask him/her to support the bill (the number is S4401, although I’m sure they’ll know what you’re talking about!) you could make a difference. And it would make me very happy!
