Governor wants gay marriage law

New York Gov. David Paterson plans to introduce legislation to legalize same-sex marriage, reviving a bill that died in 2007 and faces strong opposition despite a new Democratic majority in the state Senate. Paterson said "there is clearly a problem" when gays and lesbians in civil unions are denied civil protections such as healthcare and pension rights because they're not married.
