Statement From Sen. Schneiderman On Marriage Equality Vote In State Assembly

Eric T. Schneiderman

May 13, 2009

“By voting for marriage equality, the Assembly has made history once again. Legislators transcended party lines to give everyone in New York the right to the legal benefits that come with a marriage license. Now, with all eyes on the Senate, I am hopeful that we can get the votes needed to ensure that every New Yorker’s civil rights are protected. From a legal and moral standpoint, this is the right thing to do.”
