Illinois Governor Pat Quinn to Sign Civil Union Bill This Afternoon


Governor Pat Quinn will sign the Illinois civil unions bill at a ceremony this afternoon. Yesterday State Rep. Deb Mell, who you may recall gave a passionate speech on the House floor during which she announced her engagement, stopped in a t WGN to talk about the historic signing.


Quinn's office has been publicizing the signing for a week and expects at least 1,000 people to turn out at the Chicago Cultural Center at 4 pm.

  1. My partner of 18 years and I will be there for the signing this afternoon. We are very excited! That said, this bill soon to become law is separate and not equal, it is unconstitutional, but it is a start.
