Go New York! This would be a nice boost after the defeat in Maine last week. Remember this bill has already passed in the Assembly, so if the Senate approves it, the Gov will sign it.

So how long will it be before it goes to the ballot? We all know how the "right" loves to put Civil Rights up to vote.

Does NY state even have such a provision in their laws or would passage by the state assembly and signature by the governor be the end of the issue for that state?

New York doesn't have any referendum or initiative or people's veto crap. The only way to change the law would be a constitutional amendment which will NEVER pass in the Assembly.

Actually they could vote in a new legislature and repeal the law. That's highly unlikely, no matter how loudly the homophobes scream REVOLUTION! We've already gone through that exercise in Vermont after civil unions. Guess what? Vermont recognizes marriage equality now!

You need to read the comment from Wolfgang E B in the following Topix thread. I was astounded anyone for gay marriage would make such a statement.
