Battle Lines Drawn For Historic Same-Sex Marriage Vote This Week


A potentially historic vote on same-sex marriage is expected this week in the Illinois Senate… and while supporters say they have the votes to pass it, State Senator Larry Bomke isn’t so sure. 

 

Bomke continues to oppose legalizing same-sex marriage, and says he doesn’t think the votes are there to approve the legislation. 

 

Supporters and opponents are gearing up for a final battle on the legislation.  Chicago’s Catholic cardinal Francis George is telling Illinois Catholics to contact their lawmakers to urge a “no” vote.  And actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson of the TV show “Modern Family” visits Springfield Thursday to lobby in favor of the bill.
