Diane Savino speaks to marriage equality supporters

Speaking at Marriage Equality New York's annual gala in Manhattan on Thursday, May 19, state Sen. Diane Savino [D-Staten Island] said she remains optimistic that marriage equality could soon become a reality in the Empire State.

Savino said there are currently 26 pro-marriage equality votes in the state Senate, but 32 votes are needed to pass a marriage equality bill. "We need six more votes--Democrat or Republican," she said.

There are 15 working days left in the legislative session.
