Skelos: 'Framework' in Place on Issues, But No Agreement on Same-Sex Marriage

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Senate leader Dean Skelos said there's a "framework" in place on New York City rent regulations and a statewide property tax cap — but no clarity around the issue of same-sex marriage.

The Republican leader of the New York Senate said same-sex marriage was not discussed during the meetings with the governor and top Assembly leader. 

Skelos met separately on Tuesday with Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has made same-sex marriage a key policy initiative of his first year in office. 

Opponents and supporters are rallying at the Capitol again Tuesday.
