Eugene Delgaudio: "Liberal Illinois Senate Attacks Marriage"-- urges support for Feb. 20 Family Lobby Day
Senate Committee Overrides Illinois History
Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio urges support for the February 20 Defend Marriage Lobby Day in Illinois to lobby the Illinois house.
The Senate Executive Committee decided to override Illinois history this afternoon by approving SB 10 which redefines marriage to include two individuals of the same sex. The bill passed out of committee by a 9-5 vote along party lines.
The bill now moves to the full Illinois Senate for its consideration, with a possible vote coming on Valentine's Day (February 14th). If it were to pass the Illinois Senate, it would move to the Illinois House for a committee hearing. This makes the February 20th Defend Marriage Lobby Day more important than ever. This planned lobby day couldn't come at a better time. We have a very good chance of stopping this bill in the Illinois House IF we show up and speak out!
