Illinois Republicans Introduce Legislation Protecting Marriage

 

The latest out of Illinois:

With the recent lawsuits filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County challenging the prohibition of same-sex marriage in the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act, State Representatives David Reis (R-Ste. Marie) is co-sponsoring a resolution which upholds the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

“It is time for the General Assembly to reaffirm their support for Illinois laws reserving the institution of marriage between one man and one woman,” Rep. Reis said.  “The people I represent are adamantly opposed to same-sex marriage and troubled by our Attorney General’s recent dereliction of duty by not defending our state’s policy on marriage.” -- PressMentor
