Illinois, USA: Marriage Equality Bill 10 Votes Short in the House?

Written by scott on March 13th, 2013

Chicago ShorelineIt’s soooo close. Both chambers are controlled by democrats, but some are squeamish about the bill. Joe.My.God reports:

…it seems like the same sex marriage bill (SB 10) may be 10 votes short in the Illinois House. The bill’s sponsor, Democrat State Rep. Greg Harris needs 60 votes to make gay marriage the new law of the land. Governor Pat Quinn has already committed to signing the bill.

This could very well be wrong, as it comes from marriage equality opponents at the anti-gay Illinois Review blog. But call your legislators anyway!
