ATTORNEY GENERAL MADIGAN COMMENDS PASSAGE OF MARRIAGE EQUALITY LEGISLATION

Chicago — Attorney General Lisa Madigan today issued the following statement in response to the House of Representatives’ passage of SB10:

“This victory is about important American principles: freedom and fairness. At its heart, marriage equality is about affording the same rights and responsibilities to all no matter whom we love. With the passage of this legislation, the House has rightfully acted to convey upon all committed couples and their families the dignity they have long deserved. I am proud of the House of Representatives’ historic vote today.”
