From the NTT:
ALBANY – Gov. David A. Paterson has directed all state agencies to begin to revise their policies and regulations to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions, like Massachusetts, California and Canada.

After first recognizing SS Marriage, we have shown that the world did not end. That may have played plenty into California’s recent polling on their SC’s recent marriage decision. Now we can show that recognizing SS marriages in other states won’t end the world either. Once that track record is shown, it should further strengthen the case for other states to recognizes SS marriages themselves or of other states.
As states follow NY I wonder what the effect will be on CA and MA tourism.
