Morning Sweep

We hope you had a happy Thanksgiving! Here's an update on some of the news over the holiday:

The New York Times reports that the passing marriage could play a favorable role in the state's budget crisis: NY could expect to take in more than $50 million a year in new revenue from the legalization of same-sex marriage, from a combination of marriage license and tourism revenue.

Activists in New Jersey are lobbying for marriage there.

The L.A. Times writes forcefully against the "Manhattan Declaration," an anti-gay letter released last week by a group of Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox leaders.

The government of Portugal may soon legalize marriage for same-sex couples.
