A letter from Illinois State Representative, Greg Harris, 13th District, Lead Sponsor of the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act:
I’ve voted on my fair share of important bills in my time in the Illinois House of Representatives.
Lambda Legal and GLAD submitted a friend-of-the court brief today arguing that Prop 8—which revoked same-sex couples’ freedom to marry in California—violates the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
From the Chicago Tribune:
A little more than two years ago, the Illinois General Assembly took a carefully measured step toward marriage equality, the full legal recognition of committed partnerships, regardless of the parties' sexual orientation.
