Quinn Applauds Landmark Supreme Court Ruling On Gay Marriage


Governor Pat Quinn says the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage provides 11-hundred reasons for Illinois to pass a marriage equality law. 

 

That number is a reference to the estimated 11-hundred federal rights and benefits that are extended to married couples… but which were denied to legally-married gay couples until now.  The high court ruled that denying those benefits to same-sex couples who were married in a state that permits such unions is unconstitutional. 

 

Quinn again called on lawmakers to approve a pending bill which cleared the state Senate in February but was never called for a vote in the House.
