Getting Closer!

The Illinois House Committee advanced a bill yesterday that will hopefully legalize same-sex marriage in this great state I call home.  Woohoo!  As much as I want to break out the party hats and rainbow streamers, it still needs to pass a full House vote, as that’s the final obstacle before this bill becomes a much-needed law.  Our Governor, Pat Quinn, has already vowed that he’ll sign the bill once it reaches his desk.

There’s not a firm date yet as to when last step could be taken but it’s looking like early March, so hopefully within the next few weeks.  Then Illinois would become the 10th state in the country to recognize that people who happen to love other people of the same-sex deserve the rights that heterosexuals have and often take for granted.  I’ve been watching this whole bill with anticipation and while I don’t want to celebrate too early, it looks like ordering those rainbow-colored streamers might not be a bad idea.

And it’s about damn time!
