If the votes are there the Gov will call a special session. If he doesn't, then we know the votes aren't there yet.

If you remember, years ago, it was Hawaii who kicked off the whole spree of other states adopting constitutional amendments banning marriage equality, because Hawaii at that time looked likely to approve equal marriage rights for LGBT people, and many other states, SPECIFICALLY CITING the U.S. Constitution's "Full Faith and Credit" clause which MUST be applied to ALL marriages in the U.S.
