Illinois House committee OKs gay marriage
Gay marriage in Illinois has cleared a House committee by a 6-5 vote.
It will now move to a full House vote, where it could meet its strongest opposition.
The measure would allow marriage between two people, instead of just between a man and a woman.
The Senate has already passed it.
Governor Quinn says he plans to sign it into law.
Illinois would then become the 10th state to allow gay marriage.
