Quinn to sign civil-unions bill next year
News update Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010


Those hoping that Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn would sign the civil-unions bill by the end of this year will have to wait a little longer.

Quinn has said he expects to hold a ceremony to sign the measure early next year.

A bill that has passed both chambers must be presented to the governor within 30 days of its passage. ( The state Senate passed the civil-unions bill Dec. 1, while the House passed it the previous day. ) The governor then has 60 days beyond that to take action.

The law will go into effect July 1, 2011.
