Illinois House Passes Gay Marriage Bill, Becomes 15th State In Nation To Demonstrate Equality

This is tremendous news that happened just minutes ago.

The Illinois House has narrowly approved a gay marriage bill, clearing the way for Illinois to become the 15th state to legalize same-sex unions.

The bill got 61 votes, one more than the bare minimum needed to send the  measure back to the Senate for final approval that’s expected later today.  Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn has said he would sign the bill into law should it reach his desk.
