Illinois Senate Approves Gay Marriage

And now it faces a less certain fate in the House.

Democratic Governor Pat Quinn has promised to sign any bill legalizing gay marriage, which would make Illinois the 10th state to legalize same-sex nuptials, in addition to the District of Columbia. It would also become the first Midwestern state to approve same-sex marriage through legislation. Iowa’s Supreme Court legalized such marriages there in 2009.
