AUSTIN, Texas — What does the Illinois State Legislature say about marriage?
The House passed a measure last week to allow same-year marriage in the state, and Senate Republicans have already voted to approve a similar measure.
The Senate is expected to take up same-day marriage on Thursday, a week after it approved a similar bill.
Illinois has never approved same-gender marriage, but lawmakers and activists have been pushing to do so since 2015.
Some lawmakers, including Gov.
Bruce Rauner, have said they will support same-date marriage, although he has not made any comments on the legislation.
But some same- sex marriage supporters say it would be unconstitutional for the state to recognize same-semester marriages.
