Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn will sign the landmark civil unions legislation into law during a ceremony in downtown Chicago on Monday, Jan. 31.
The architect behind the bill, openly-gay State Rep. Greg Harris (D-Chicago), announced the date on his Facebook page on Saturday.
“Plan to attend and witness history taking place,” wrote Harris.
A source close to the planning tells ChicagoPride.com that the signing ceremony will be held at 4 p.m. on Jan. 31 at the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington, in Chicago’s Loop.
