Howard's Right!


Howard Stern today made mention of New York's struggle to pass a marriage equality bill.  The controversial measure that would make gay marriage legal, introduced by Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat and strong advocate, is currently one vote shy of passage in the state Senate and subject to a vote after the Assembly passed the bill last week.

Howard stated today that any society that bans equal rights to all people, whether they are black, women, gay or otherwise - is not a civilized society.

Currently, undecided Republican senators Roy J. McDonald (518-455-2381), Greg Ball (518-455-3111), Stephen M. Saland (518-455-2411) and Kemp Hannon (518-455-2200) who voted “no” last year as well as Democratic Senator Ruben Diaz of the Bronx (518-455-2511) must be called collectively by us as a community to sway their indecision to in favor by the end of this week.  In addition, Republicans Sen. Dean G. Skelos (518-455-3171) the highest ranking Republican and leader of the Majority is opposed to the legislation.

This is our last chance as New Yorker's to make our voices heard before a vote is taken TODAY!
