The Illinois Same-Sex Marriage Ban Amendment may appear on the November 2014 statewide ballot as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would place a ban on same-sex marriage in the state constitution.[1]

Background

During the veto session in late 2012, Representative Greg Harris introduced House Bill 5170, which would amend marriage laws in the state to include same-sex couples. Senator William Haine proposed the amendment banning the practice in response to the filing of HB5170.[1]
