closer still

more good news for marriage in new york:
"The GOP's New York leadership in both the state senate and assembly are going to allow Republican legislators to make "conscience votes" on Gov. David Paterson's marriage-equality bill rather than pressuring party members to vote against it, giving the legislation a much stronger likelihood of picking up Republican votes in both chambers."
a conscience vote allows legislators to vote according to their own personal conscience rather than according to an official line set down by their political party.
