LGBTQ Nation reports:
Gov. Pat Quinn says he’s not discouraged that Illinois lawmakers came away from two days of their fall veto session without tackling any of the major issues on their agenda. The Chicago Democrat says the days were valuable for discussion to “lay a foundation” on the state’s pension crisis and same-sex marriage. Both chambers adjourned for the week Wednesday afternoon, however neither issue came up for a vote before lawmakers left town. They’ll be back next month. Quinn says that’ll be the time to take votes.
But will Illinois lawmakers actually have the courage to take up marriage equality vote in November?
