Illinois poised to send gay couples a big marriage equality Valentine2/15/2013
Same-sex marriage rights may soon come to another state in the union: A bill passed in the Illinois state Senate by a vote of 34 to 21, with just one Republican joining the Democratic majority. It will now travel to the House of Representatives; if it passes there, Gov. Pat Quinn has said he will sign the bill into law. If it's successful, Illinois will be the 10th state (along with the District of Columbia) to enshrine same-sex marriage as law. If not, credit will go to opponents including Chicago Cardinal Francis George and the state GOP, which tried to oust its party chairman, Pat Brady, after he backed the bill. [Source]
