Late Friday afternoon, the Republican Senate leader finally ended the frustrating delay of the vote.

“After many hours of deliberation and discussion over the past several weeks among the members, it has been decided that same-sex marriage legislation will be brought to the full Senate for an up or down vote,” the majority leader, Long Island Republican Dean G. Skelos said in a statement. “As I have said many times, this is a very difficult issue and it will be a vote of conscience for every member of the Senate.”
