Quinn Hopes for Gay Marriage Bill Next Month
Gov. Pat Quinn is hoping a bill allowing gay marriage in Illinois moves through the general assembly during next month's lame duck session.
Earlier this year, legislators filed the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, which would eliminate the part of state law that explicitly prohibits gay marriage. Quinn signed a bill last year legalizing civil unions, but 25 gay couples are suing over the state's gay marriage ban.
