Illinois Legislature-Gay Marriage

In this Feb. 8, 2012 file photo, Illinois Sen. Heather Steans, D-Chicago, right, confers with Illinois Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, on the Senate floor during session at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield, Ill. Advocates of legalized gay marriage in Illinois are pleased that Steans and state Rep. Greg Harris are planning to push for approval in January. Steans and Harris say they believe they have the votes necessary to fulfill Gov. Pat Quinn's hope of signing same-sex marriage into law in January.
