For the fourth session in a row the Assembly has passed a gay marriage bill, but the 80-63 margin was the smallest ever...Now attention shifts to the Senate where observers still think the Governor has the votes to pass it. Meanwhile NYC rent control got a two day extender to Friday as it will become part of some grand compromise on several issues.
So far no one has announced as the 32nd vote for same sex nuptuals....A lot are afraid of reelection consequences.
While shaky knees could defeat it, I don't think so...Too much is on the line for Andrew Cuomo who said he wouldnt bring the bill to the floor unless he knew he had the votes.
Assembly Passes Marriage But, But Tally Is Low
