New York Senate has sent gay marriage bill to the floor for a vote


The New York Senate has sent the gay marriage bill to the floor for a vote.

Republicans in the New York Senate agreed Friday to allow a full vote on legalizing gay marriage, setting the stage for a possible breakthrough victory for the gay-rights movement in the state where it got its start.

New York could become the sixth state where gay couples can wed, and the biggest by far. A vote could come as soon as tonight.
