New York Assembly passed same-sex marriage legislation
Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On June 19, 2007, the New York State Assembly voted 85-61 to pass a bill to legalize same-sex marriage. The bill was proposed in April 2007 by Governor Eliot Spitzer. The bill went on to be defeated in the New York State Senate. A similar measure was again passed by the Assembly in 2009 after it was introduced by Governor David Paterson, only to be rejected again in the State Senate. The New York Assembly approved a third version of the bill on June 16, 2011, introduced by Governor Andrew Cuomo. The Senate has yet to vote on the latest version.
