USA, Illinois: Will Marriage Equality Bill Come Up During Veto Session?

Written by scott on September 10th, 2013

Illinois mapAs the Fall’s “Veto Session” approaches in late October, gay activists are looking for more votes for the marriage equality Bill.

Go Pride reports:

Zero. That is the number of on-record “yes” votes for marriage equality added since May 31. But LGBT leaders say that support for the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, SB10, is growing and they intend to see a vote on the bill during this fall’s veto session. LGBT leaders and sponsors are in the midst of a massive push to pass the bill, after an attempt to do so fell short during the spring session in May.

It’s been awfully quiet over there – anyone have a behind-the-scenes look at what’s going on in Springfield?
