Illinois gay rights groups launch civil union tracker
"Two gay rights organizations have launched a way to track the couples who take advantage of Illinois' newly signed civil unions law.
"Lambda Legal and Equality Illinois say their civil union tracker aims to make sure same-sex and different-sex couples are treated fairly under the law.
"Gov. Pat Quinn signed the civil unions law Monday during a Chicago ceremony attended by about 1,000 people. The law takes effect June 1."
