Gay marriage activists rallied today outside State Representative Chuck Jefferson’s office in Rockford, Illinois today. WIFR reports:
…a few dozen Stateliners rallied today outside State Representative Chuck Jefferson’s office this afternoon. Jefferson is one of the few local lawmakers who says he hasn’t decided where he stands on the issue of same sex-marriage. A spokeswoman tells us Jefferson wants to hear from his constituents before he makes up his mind. Organizer Bob Black hopes he can help persuade him.
No word yet whether the marriage equality bill will be brought up in the special summer session on pension reform.
