New York Agencies to Recognize Same Sex Unions

The New York Times reports that the Governor of the State of New York has directed all New York state agencies to revise all statutes and regulations of the State so that same sex unions or marriages can be recognized in New York “as any other legally performed union”.

The NY Times further reports that, interestingly enough, the State of New York does not itself allow gay marriage, but will nevertheless fully recognize unions entered into elsewhere.
