Governor Quinn Says Illinois Should Approve Gay Marriage
The bill's sponsors expect a Senate floor vote on Valentine's Day. Quinn helped Illinois approve civil unions in 2011. If Illinois approves gay marriage, it would become the 10th state in the nation to do so. Advocates say momentum in other states and President Barack Obama's support fuel their efforts in Illinois. Some religious groups have opposed the idea.
