Cullerton Wants Gay Marriage Vote on Feb. 14
By AP
SPRINGFIELD, IL - Illinois Senate President John Cullerton says he wants to pass same-sex marriage legislation on Valentine's Day.
 
Cullerton tells the Chicago Sun-Times that he'd like the state Senate to pass the measure out of committee next week and vote to approve it on Feb. 14.
 
Cullerton says he believes the bill has the thirty votes needed to pass and move to the Illinois House.
 
Advocates have been pushing for legislation that offers same-sex couples marriage rights currently only available to heterosexual couples. They'd hoped to capitalize on momentum from other states and President Barack Obama's support.
