Statement of NYS Senator Thomas K. Duane Following the State Assembly's Passage of Marriage Equality Legislation

May 12, 2009

"The eyes of the State, and indeed the nation, turn to the New York State Senate in the fight for marriage equality. Today's vote in the Assembly in favor of same-sex civil marriage once again proved that civil rights cannot and will not be denied.

"I am confident that this year my Senate will uphold this fundamental legal principle and vote for my right, our right, to be married this year."
