Legalization of same sex marriage would pay off economically for New York state Jesse Russell reports.

A report from New York City’s comptroller office takes a hard look at how much that state would benefit from legalizing same-sex marriage. According to the study, the economy would see an influx of $210 million over three years. However, businesses would likely need to spend up to $69 million over those same three years in health insurance benefits to same-sex couples.
