New York governor David Paterson, a longtime supporter of same-sex marriage, is putting his money where his mouth is -- by placing a marriage equality bill on the state senate's November 10 agenda.

Empire State Pride Agenda released a statement: "Marriage equality has been an issue Governor Paterson has long championed and we are thrilled he has called the state senate back to Albany next Tuesday and put the marriage equality bill on the agenda. We now expect that we will get the respectful debate and vote that we've been waiting for since June."

The statement continues, "We look forward to hearing our lives and our families debated on the Senate floor next Tuesday. It's now time that each of the 62 state senators vote their conscience on this bill that has great implications for hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers in all parts of the state."
