Left Side of the Aisle #96 - Part 1

Good news: IL Senate passes same-sex marriage bill

A quick hit of good news. The Illinois state Senate has made a love offering of sorts: On, appropriately enough, Valentine’s Day, it passed a bill to allow for same-sex marriage in the state. The vote was 34-21 with 2 abstentions.

The measure now goes to the House, where the fight is expected to be tougher. But with the victory in the Senate and the support of Gov. Pat Quinn, there is reason for optimism.

Slow but steady progress. It's a small step, but small steps are still steps.
