Illinois State Representative Greg Harris and State Senator Heather Steans wasted no time yesterday in pushing for the freedom to marry. The lawmakers introduced HB 110 and SB 110, the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act. 

We're glad our legislators are pursuing passage of the bill with urgency. Marriage is urgent for the thousands of Illinois same-sex couples and their children who need the freedom to marry right now. The introduction of the bill on the first day of the new Illinois legislative session is yet another sign that it's a matter of when, and not if, marriage happens in Illinois.
