EI lobbies in Burbs
Within the next 12 weeks Illinois House Bill 101 is likely to come up for a vote in the Senate Executive Committee. "Of the 13 votes, we need to secure seven," reports Equality Illinois about the gay-rights measure. "Currently, we have the support of all five Democrats and need to sway just two of the eight Republicans. Once this is done, HB 101 will advance to the Senate floor where we have the votes needed for it to pass and be signed by Gov. Ryan."
