Fight Over Marriage Equality Could Be Put to Illinois Voters


As a court fight over marriage equality in Illinois continues, some lawmakers want to take the issue out of the hands of the courts, and put it into the hands of the voters.

 

Four Republican representatives have signed on as co-sponsors of the resolution, which seeks to put a constitutional amendment on the 2014 ballot, one which would state that “only a marriage between a man and a woman would be valid and recognized in Illinois.”

 

Past attempts to put similar language on the ballot in Illinois have failed.

 

No action on the new attempt is expected until this fall at the earliest.
