said senator responded that he will vote for it.... his autistic grandchildren (according to him) told him it is the right thing to do!!!

and the children shall lead them

vote is anticipated for Friday - supposedly needs only 1 more senator to say yes!

we need the yes vote big time! the more states that accept this legislation, the easier it will be for the rest of the states to pass these laws.

Thanks for the update... the more states that legalize, the closer we are to a federal legalization. I thought about moving to Canada, but it is just too darn cold. :)

In more than one way!!!

This morning on the way to work I saw an ad on one of those electronic billboards.. addressed to one of our state senators asking him to vote for the gay marriage act.. how encouraging it was to see!

As you may or may not know, New York legislature is again approaching a vote to legalize gay marriage in the state.. fully backed by the previous governor, once passed by the state assembly but not by the senate in the last vote. This governor is also backing the law as it appears is the assembly... the senate still seems neck and neck, although some who previously voted against now say they will vote for it...

Hopefully soon New York will become the newest and largest state to make the change! Keep your eyes on the prize!
