$103 Million Dollars.

There is a new study that claims the State of Illinois could net a much that much,  if it legalizes same sex marriage.

Of course, the economics will not be the deciding factor either way. But it is something to think about, especially in a cash strapped state like Illinois.

I spoke to a number of people/groups who are against same sex marriage. They pointed to a potential cost increase in benefits, services, etc. I did not find any studies on that. But if you know of one please share.

This is a small part of this debate. But, still an interesting one.

What do you think? Are economics a factor in your thoughts on same sex marriage?
