In a press release
issued Monday, the New York State Bar Association declared that securing the right for gays and lesbians to legally marry will top its list of legislative priorities this year.
“Under current state law, there are significant differences in the legal treatment of marital relationships and committed same-sex relationships in a wide range of matters such as property rights, financial support, responsibilities to children, health care, social security, long-term care, domestic violence, access to the court system, and other issues,” the release read.
