Illinois Marriage Bill Introduced on First Day of New Session

Yesterday Representative Greg Harris and Senator Heather Steans introduced HB 110 and SB 110, The Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, wasting no time in pushing for the freedom to marry in Illinois. Jim Bennett, Regional Director for the Midwest Regional Office of Lambda Legal, release the following statement:

“We’re glad our legislators are pursuing passage of the bill with urgency. Marriage is urgent for the thousands of Illinois same-sex couples and their children who need the freedom to marry right now,” said Jim Bennett.”The introduction of the bill on the first day of the new lllinois Legislative session is yet another sign that it’s a matter of when, and not if, marriage happens in Illinois.”
