Illinois Senate committee approves gay marriage
CHICAGO (AP) — An Illinois Senate committee has approved legalizing gay marriage for the second time in a month.
The Executive Committee voted 9-5 Tuesday to move legislation giving marital rights to same sex couples to the Senate floor. Democrats with a 40-member majority say they have the needed votes.
The same committee OK'd a similar measure just after the New Year -- in the final days of the last General Assembly. But a floor vote was scuttled because supporters feared they were short of the 30 necessary votes.
