Illinois Business Leaders Push For Gay Marriage

A group of Illinois business leaders is urging state lawmakers to approve legislation allowing gay couples to marry. The letter is reportedly signed by the CEOs of a number of top Illinois-based companies, including Google and Morningstar.


An executive of the Chicago Cubs has also reportedly signed the letter. It says marriage equality is “pro-growth and pro-jobs,” because it creates a fair, respectful and equitable environment for all citizens, making it easier to attract good employees.


The state Senate could take up a bill to legalize same-sex marriage as early as this week.
