Senate President John Cullerton's spokesperson Rakeesha Phelon said the proposal to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples will get a committee hearing Thursday but there aren't currently enough votes to pass it on the floor.
"It is clear that we will need bipartisan support in order to take floor votes on gun safety and marriage equality this week," Phelon said. "We will take some time to work on these important issues to advance them in the near future."
Phelon says she doesn't know how many votes there are for the plan or when it might be called. Some Democrats were not in attendance Thursday. Phelon says no Republicans supported it. (AP)
