Gay Marriage Up For A Vote Today

Posted by wlpo on February 26, 2013

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – An Illinois House committee could vote today on a measure allowing same-sex couples to marry.

Chicago Democratic Rep. Greg Harris says he expects the House Executive Committee to approve his legislation and send it to the full body. The Senate approved the measure earlier this month with Democratic backing and a single Republican vote.

A House OK would send the matter to Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn. He says he’ll sign it.
