Illinois Governor Wants A Marriage Equality Bill

Gov. Quinn (D-IL)
From the Chicago Tribune:

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn today said he hopes state lawmakers send him a gay marriage bill when they meet again in January, but even the measure's sponsor is unsure the issue will rise to the top of a busy agenda.

“I hope that bill goes forward,” Quinn said when asked about the possibility of the measure being passed before new lawmakers are sworn in Jan. 9. “It’s the House that probably the key arena at this time, and I think we’ll see how the members look at that issue. They should study it carefully and vote their conscience.”
