Marriage Equality NY
June 16, 2011 by USA Post
Marriage Equality NY, Senate Republican Conference plans of the bill on marriage equality once again today. They still have not decided on a vote: The bill is also in the center of the furious back and forth on everything from New York control laws of the City of income and property taxes at the state college tuition and a host of other issues as the Legislature tries to end its session in 2011 in the coming days.
In a week that has seen five senators flip their positions to support gay marriage now, the handful of undecided senators – including freshman Sen. Mark Grisanti of Buffalo – said they remained on the fence after the marathon-door meeting closed among Republicans.
“I am where I was yesterday,” said Grisanti, who has spent a vote for uncertainty.
Senator Greg Ball, who has been vocal about wanting to religious exemptions in the bill, which has always been, says he still wants more, shot yesterday in an interview after yesterday’s conference of the Senate. Two clips, talk to these requests, and give an idea of?? The tone of the Senate of the conference yesterday
Jimmy Vielkind in confidential reports of the Capitol Robin Wilson, professor of law at Washington & Lee in Virginia, wrote a letter to Senator Greg Ball, a comparison of outstanding New York same-sex marriage law with the laws passed in other states.

Cuomo spokesman Josh Vlasto said no further changes to the bill being considered.
Here is a little vision in Mark Grisanti of Buffalo:
“It’s something I think almost every second of every day in the last couple of weeks,” said Grisanti, the only Western New York Republican who is considering supporting the project, which has the backing of Sen. Timothy M. Kennedy of Buffalo.
Friends say Grisanti has become almost consumed by the weight of the issue and who is torn between his personal beliefs as a Catholic in a conservative area and concerns the issue of civil rights lawyer.
“If I take out the Catholic myself, which is hard to do, then you absolutely must have these rights,” Grisanti said.
“It has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with my personal belief.”
