$2 million marriage equality campaign launched in Illinois

$2 million marriage equality campaign launched in Illinois

Marriage equality advocates are moving forward with the launch of a new $2 million statewide campaign, the AP reports:

In a statement Tuesday, the group says it will place 15 field organizers throughout the state to engage supporters. They plan to target legislators who oppose a measure to lift Illinois’ ban on same-sex marriage.

The Illinois Senate passed the bill in February. It wasn’t called for a vote in the House because the bill’s sponsor said it didn’t have the votes to pass.

It’s possible the state legislators may address the issue again this fall.
