Illinois Senator Heather Steans became the first in to introduce a Marriage Equality Bill to the Senate, Illinois SB2468.
Will we make it this time?
If you recall, earlier this year State Representative Greg Harris, who happens to be gay, tried to get HB2234 and SB1716 to the floor before the end of last years session, sadly that didn't happen.
But now, it's a new legislative session and a lot of work has been done over the summer and leading up to the National Equality March in a few weeks.
It's time to start dialing your phones and tell your senators that you want them to pass SB2468.
