New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo spoke with Republican senators as late as Thursday night in an effort to garner support for his marriage equality bill, which has already passed the state's Assembly. Some senators want the bill to include language that would prevent litigation against religious institutions that choose not to recognize same-sex married couples. Cuomo is one vote shy of a majority needed to pass the bill, and leaders in the Republican-controlled Senate must also agree to bring the bill to the floor for a vote, which could occur as early as today.
