ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley is scheduled to meet with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to discuss same-sex marriage and immigration issues.

O’Malley is going to New York City on Thursday for a Democratic Governors Association meeting. Raquel Guillory, an O’Malley spokeswoman, says the governor wanted to pay a courtesy visit to the mayor.

O’Malley, who chairs the DGA, is pushing to legalize same-sex marriage in Maryland this legislative session after a measure stalled last year.

The measure O’Malley is making a priority this session seeks to assure wavering lawmakers that religious freedom will be protected.

New York approved same-sex marriage last year, after lawmakers fine-tuned the legislation to safeguard religious freedom.
