Illinois marriage bill introduced

Timothy Kincaid

February 8th, 2012

Three legislators have introduced a bill in the Illinois House to enact marriage equality. This bill, which comes a year after the state enacted Civil Unions, may not have been presented with the expectation of passage, but as a means to introduce the notion and begin conversation.

I’d expected this, but not until next year. It’ll be interesting to see the reaction, both in the legislature and from Laurie Higgins. (I suspect in the latter case the shrillness is going to be deafening.)

Oh, and as a footnote to your comment, the notion has been introduced — everyone, both pro and con, are very aware that the civil unions bill was only the first step.
