Update: New York State Senate Votes for Marriage Equality, 33-29

Celebrations!

The New York State Senate is voting tonight on marriage equality; the Assembly has passed same-sex marriage four times, and Governor Cuomo has made it his first-year signature issue, so the Senate is key. Once signed into law, if passed by the State Senate, marriage equality will be the law of the Empire State, which has no residency restrictions, so book your Niagara Falls wedding ceremonies and honeymoons based on tonight’s outcome for 30 days from the Governor’s presumed signature tomorrow — also the first day of Pride Weekend in New York City.

We need 32 votes in favor of marriage equality to pass the 62-member state Senate.

UPDATE: Vote passed: Aye 33 Nay 29
