Quote:

"If Governor Spitzer's bill were to pass, New York would be the first state to legalize same-sex marriage without the courts forcing them to do so.  He faces an uphill battle with the Republican Senate, but it is possible that sometime over the course of his term, same-sex marriage will be the law in New York.
