021413br0070rSenator Don Harmon (D - Oak Park) released the following statement following today's action by the Supreme Court:

“I’m proud to live in a country that no longer denies federally protected rights to a whole class of people. The Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act is a cause for celebration and a call to action for Illinois. The Senate already passed marriage equality. Now it’s more important than ever for the House to act.”
