Well, Maybe Not.
New York State Senate Republicans staged a coup and took over the Senate. Democrats briefly had control of the state senate for the first time in 40 years by a one seat majority. That evaporated when 2 Democratic senators, one from the Bronx (NOT Ruben Diaz) and another from Queens, defected to the Republican side. However, they did not change their party affiliation, the Democrats refuse to recognize the move, and the whole thing will likely end up in court.
So, it looks like no gay marriage bill this year.
New York ranks right up there with Texas and California when it comes to dysfunctional state government. Mercy!
