Illinois Senate Approves Marriage for Same-Sex Couples
SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Senate approved a bill legalizing marriage for same-sex couples today. The Senate approved the bill by a margin of 34-21. The bill must now be passed by the State House.
"Today we usually celebrate with flowers and chocolates. But on this historic day, Illinoisans have given their lesbian and gay friends and neighbors the gift of a lifetime – a huge step toward the freedom to marry," said John Knight, staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Project. "The overwhelming vote in the Senate creates significant momentum moving forward to the House. We are a day closer to realizing the freedom to marry for all Illinoisans."
