I think we will now no later than Friday, as the session ends on Monday.

I am cautiously optimistic that the bill will pass.

New York would be a great symbolic victory being the 3rd largest state and the fact that NOM spent so much money trying to prevent marriage equality from passing there. If we get California back that would make 7 states & over 70 million Americans living with marriage equality.

Holding my breath till the vote on Fri.

Looks like the GOPasaurs are trying to prevent a vote by claiming not enough exemptions for "religious liberty" in the bill. I say let them put in whatever exemptions they want, then we can take those specific items to court AFTER the bill passes.

The latest I've read, on WINS, and elsewhere, it does not look good for the bill to pass the Senate.

:(
