A same-sex marriage bill will be on the agenda in the State Senate on Tuesday.

If you believe, like I do, in marriage equality call State Senator Onorato and try to convince him to help make marriage equality a reality in the Empire State.

Hey guys, this call literally takes 5 seconds.  Please call the Senator's office NOW and tell them to vote YES on Marriage Equality!  If you can, please tell your friends as well.  For your friends/family/coworkers not in Astoria who don't know who their senator is: the link below will tell you, and they will even call you and connect you to your Senator!   Check it out - you don't even have to dial the number, how much easier can it get  :mrgreen:

They didn't vote on it.

Governor David Paterson's demand that the New York State Senate vote on a same sex marriage bill fell on deaf ears Tuesday but it generated a lot of loud noise and an angry shouting match between supporters and a Bronx senator against the measure.

not sure if I believe it, but I hear a vote will happen next week.  Personally, I still am not convinced we have the votes to pass it, though people I respect assure us they are there.

Undecided/Wont Say

A few have noted that the legislature has a number of pressing concerns, and they hardly are addressing those.
However, it is encouraging that a vote is expected one week soon, hopefully before the New Year.

On the NY1 survey, which other Senators do you think might vote Yes?
Life, Liberty, Happiness (pursuit of) and pasta
