If it isn't obvious by now: A planned marriage-equality vote in the New York Senate is off the table until a special session in September.
After a month-long stalemate, the Senate passed over 100 bills Friday night. They did not vote on several major items, such as marriage equality and mayoral control of city schools.
Just to keep track on who's on what base, the Democrats are back in control. For now. State Senator Pedro Espada Jr. switched sides again and was appointed Senate Majority Leader. Former Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith remains Senate president.
The Assembly passed a marriage bill 89-52 in May.
