GOP Representatives Introduce Resolution Backing Marriage Equality Ban
Two Illinois state representatives on Thursday introduced a joint resolution in support of the state’s ban on gay and lesbian couples marrying.
Representatives Thomas Morrison and David Reis, both Republicans, are backing the measure.
“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,” Reis said in a statement. “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.”
