Illinois civil unions vote could come today

Rumors and reports suggest that the Illinois legislature could vote on a civil unions bill as early as today. The real battle will be in the House, where vote count is uncertain.

Meanwhile, a Senate committee advanced the bill in that chamber.

A push to legalize civil unions for same-sex couples in Illinois cleared a small hurdle today at the Capitol.

An Illinois Senate committee advanced the measure 6-2 along party lines.

Progress Illinois is liveblogging the debate.
