New Jersey’s Senate Will Vote on Marriage on Thursday. Not That Anyone Is Terribly Optimistic

New Jersey Senate President Dick Codey says he will put gay marriage up for a vote on Thursday, and “see what happens.” Cute. But don’t get too excited. Even if there are enough votes in the Senate, and even if Assembly Speaker Joseph Roberts makes good on his promise to bring up the bill there if the Senate acts, all this has to happen, supposedly, before Monday, which is the legislative session’s final day.
