Marriage vote unlikely in New York State Senate today

Fiasco is one of many appropriate words to described yesterday's special session of the New York State Senate, but Gov. David Paterson has announced the marriage bill is the first thing on his agenda today when he orders lawmakers back into the chamber.

Activists across the state obviously continue to urge legislators to vote--and pass--the bill, which the state Assembly overwhelmingly supported last month. One Albany insider told Boy in Bushwick it remains possible Senators could vote on the proposed legislation, but they are not compelled to do so. Another source stressed she feels a vote today is very unlikely.

Stay tuned...
