NY1 News: Sen. Espaillat calls on Senate Republicans to bring Rent Regs and Same Sex Marriage for a vote
State Lawmakers Head Back To Capitol; Same-Sex Marriage, Rent Regulations Await
By NY1 News
The waiting game continues in Albany this afternoon as several pieces of pressing legislation, including rent regulations and a possible vote on same-sex marriage, remain up in the air.
The State Senate adjourned just before 11 p.m. yesterday following a marathon session...
..."We should give New Yorkers closure on this. There should be an answer on marriage. Five extenders on rent and last night they didn't even bring up an extender. Quietly in the middle of the night, with troopers in the galleries and people passionate on both sides, they quietly scooted out of the chambers," said State Senator Adriano Espaillat.
