ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York's Republican Senate leader says his members will consider a gay marriage bill in closed-door session, a possible step toward a full vote.

Sen. Dean Skelos (SKEH'-lohs) says Thursday's debate will come after the Senate passes a slew of more mundane bills.

The bill will either be sent to the Senate floor for a vote or held back, effectively killing the measure for the second time since 2009.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo says if his bill is brought to the Senate floor, he believes it will pass.

The measure that has pushed New York to the center of the national gay marriage debate appears to be one vote shy of passage if it gets to the floor.

The Democrat-led Assembly has already supported the bill.
