Same-Sex Marriage Passes Illinois Senate on Valentines Day

The futures of countless gay and lesbian couples in Illinois will now be decided by the Illinois House.


The state Senate voted on Valentine’s Day to give those couples the right to marry.


Among those supporting the bill in the Senate was local Democratic state senator Andy Manar, who says he supported it after ensuring that it would protect religious liberty.


The historic vote sends the bill to the House.


If it passes there, Governor Pat Quinn is certain to sign it, making Illinois the tenth state in the nation to allow same-sex marriage.
