Two Controversial Bills Hit Snag In Illinois Legislature


Controversial measures on gun control and same-sex marriage have both hit snags in the Illinois Senate. A spokesperson for Senate President John Cullerton says it’s now clear that despite the Democratic majority in the chamber, the votes will not be there to pass either measure without help from some Republicans.

 

The Senate Democrats’ statement says there is still work to do before either measure can be called for a full vote, quote, “in the near future.” But it’s not clear if the Senate leadership plans to bring either issue for a final vote during the current lame-duck session, or if both are dead until a new legislature is seated next week.
