Written by scott on October 11th, 2013

Illinois Representative Sam YinglingCo-sponsors of Illinois’ marriage equality bill now say they think they have the votes to pass it in the House.

GoPride reports:

As the start of the fall veto session draws closer, state Rep. Greg Harris, chief sponsor of the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, has been unwilling to commit to a vote, which could push a marriage vote to 2014. But co-sponsors of the bill are more optimistic, according to Windy City Times. “I believe the votes are there,” state Rep. Sam Yingling told the newsweekly. “There will always be excuses as to why the vote should be delayed, but the overwhelming majority of people in Illinois support marriage equality, and we need to vote on it and get it done.”

Will the bill get a vote during the upcoming veto session?

    They can either vote and approve marriage equality or face it in court their choice. The latter makes them look awfully foolish
