Morning Sweep

The expected vote on New Jersey's marriage bill that was scheduled for today has been canceled. Instead, the bill will go to the state's Assembly for a hearing first.

A San Francisco bay-area board of education is taking an unfortunate step backwards and plans to phase out an elementary school curriculum it adopted to prevent anti-gay bullying, reportedly "under the duress of a lawsuit and threats of recall."
