ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Two Republican state senators in New York say no decision has been made on the fate of gay marriage after a three-hour closed-door meeting.
The senators, speaking on condition of anonymity Monday, say gay marriage is tied up in negotiations with other issues including rent control in New York City and a statewide property tax cap.
A vote by the majority Republican conference to send the marriage bill to the Senate floor or kill it could still be days away.
A vote in New York is viewed as a critical point in the national gay marriage debate.
The senators spoke on condition of anonymity because there has been no official statement from the GOP.
