BROOKLYN - Two Republican state senators say no decision has been made on the fate of gay marriage after a three-hour closed-door meeting.
The senators, speaking on the condition of anonymity, say the bill is tied up in negotiations and that a vote by the majority Republican conference to send it to the Senate floor or kill it could still be days away.
The Assembly has already passed the Marriage Equality Bill and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) says he'll sign it if the Senate does the same. He's been working nonstop to garner support, personally lobbying Republican lawmakers on the issue.
Protesters on both sides of the issue have also gathered in Albany as the clock ticks for lawmakers nearing an end to the state's legislative session.
