Moments ago, the Senate Executive Committee passed the SB110, the Religious Freedom and Marriage Equality Act, out of committee on a vote of 9 to 5.
Senate President John Cullerton, a leading supporter of the legislation, has announced he will call the floor vote on February 14.
HRC is a proud member of the Illinois Unites for Marriage campaign working with nearly fifteen field organizers and an incredible team of organizers, volunteers and activists in the state. With a vote expected in the Senate and a vote in the House expected soon after, we are working tirelessly to make Illinois the tenth state to recognize marriage equality.
