Illinois; House of Representatives; Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act

Blog post submitted by Lynne Bowman, HRC Regional Director

The Illinois House of Representatives has just begun debate on SB10, the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act!  The energy in the chamber is incredible right now in anticipation of the vote.

We could see hours of testimony, both pro and con, so we’re settling in for a long day, and possibly night.  But we believe momentum, and history, are on our side and we will prevail with more than the 60 votes necessary to win.
