Morning Sweep

Last night after the special session of the Senate ended, Gov. Paterson announced that an agreement has been reached to have a vote on the same sex marriage bill at "a date not certain between now and the end of the year." The Senate Majority conference has pledged to commit their time and energy to making marriage equality a reality in the state of New York. Read the Pride Agenda's Action Alert on the commitment here.

Same-sex marriage passed its first hurdle in D.C. yesterday when the Council's Committee on Public Safety and the Judiciary voted 4-1 to send legislation to the full council for debate. The council is expected to take up and pass the bill early next month.

Salt Lake City became the first city in Utah yesterday to enact an LGBT-inclusive employment and housing non-discrimination ordinance.
