The Illinois Senate Executive Committee has passed the bill for same-sex marriage and sent it to the full state's Senate. If the measure becomes law, Illinois could become the 10th state in the USA to legalize marriage equality.
Today, Illinois recognizes same-sex unions as civil unions after being approved on January 2011. About public opinion, in November 2012, a Public Policy Polling survey found that 47% of Illinois voters were in favor of same-sex marriage, 42% were opposed and 11% were not sure. One of the main supporters is President Obama who has urged lawmakers of his home state to approve this law.
Now we just wait for the final vote.
