Illinois Senator introduces marriage equality bill

10/01/09 Bay Windows:

A marriage equality bill called the "Equal Marriage Act" was introduced into the Illinois Senate by State Senator Heather Steans Oct. 1. ... State Representative Greg Harris (the only openly gay House member until recently) introduced a similar bill [HB178] earlier this year called the "Same-sex Marriage and Religious Freedoms Act" -- the same bill that Harris has introduced at the beginning of every session since 2007.
