N.Y. Gay Marriage Vote November 10?


New York governor David Paterson on Sunday called for state legislators to meet in a special session on November 10, during which time senators may vote on a bill to legalize same-sex marriage.

Sine the regular session ended amid a senate power struggle in June, the prospective extraordinary session will address budget issues and unfinished business, according to WCBS-TV.

"The special session is expected to include a possible vote by the senate to give final legislative approval to a same-sex marriage bill," reported WCBS-TV. "Paterson has predicted the bill will be passed and signed into law in coming weeks."

Paterson made the prediction on Thursday in a speech to the Empire State Pride Agenda, where he said he would put the marriage equality bill on the legislative calendar during the special session.

The assembly passed the marriage equality bill this spring for the second time, but the closely divided state senate has yet to take a vote on the bill.
