Same-sex marriage legislation passed the Maryland Senate this year, and O'Malley said he would sign it if it reached his desk.

O'Malley will hold a press conference at 2 p.m. to talk about how he will support legislation in the next regular session of the General Assembly, which begins in January.

Same-sex marriage legislation passed the Maryland Senate this year, and O'Malley said he would sign it if it reached his desk. But it stalled in the House of Delegates.

Earlier this month, gay marriage proponents launched a new campaign to seek approval from Maryland lawmakers after New York approved its own same-sex marriage bill.

O'Malley says he has been looking at New York's legislation, including protections for religious freedom.
