Area Lawmakers Differ On Online Dating Bill

Posted by wlpo on April 2, 2012

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – Every use online dating sites? State  lawmakers are trying to make it safer for people to use them.

The legislation aiming to do that passed the Illinois House last week. It would require Internet dating services operating in Illinois to post disclaimers saying whether they conduct background checks on their members. State Representative Frank Mautino supports the idea.

Opponents like State Representative Pam Roth say the bill overreaches. Republican Rep. Jim Durkin of LaGrange says adults should be responsible for their own safety when using such sites. The law now goes to the Senate.
