Gay marriage bill talks unresolved in NY SenatePosted: Updated:
(AP) - Republican state senators who are key to thefuture of gay marriage in New York have taken a break from theirclosed-door debate on the issue. That will delay a possible vote on a legalization bill, althoughthe Senate could still act on Thursday or Friday. Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos said after a three-hoursession Wednesday that no decisions have been made to even send thebill to the floor. It remains unknown if there are enough GOP senators bucking theconference position and supporting legalization. Senate Republicans led an effort to easily defeat a similar billin 2009. But enough Democratic and Republican senators have announcedchanges in their votes that there may now be a tie in the chamber. At least two remain undecided.
