The Associated Press is reporting that New York legislative officials say Gov. David Paterson is expected to introduce legislation to legalize gay marriage.
Two officials say he will introduce the legislation tomorrow. They spoke on condition of anonymity because there’s been no formal announcement.
The proposal would revive a bill that died in 2007 and still faces strong opposition despite a new Democratic majority in the state Senate
A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith says he doesn’t believe there are enough votes in the chamber to pass the bill.
Paterson, however, says he’ll make a brand new start of it – in old New York.
The governor was overhead saying “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere. Its up to you – New York, New York.”
(I was kidding about that last part.)
