More Civil Union News

The Governor of Illinois signed that state’s civil union legislation into law yesterday. The law takes effect June 1. The copy of the legislation that I was able to find (and locating one was no easy task on the Illinois legislature’s web site) indicates that Illinois will recognize same-sex relationships solemnized in other jurisdictions (e.g., a same-sex marriage, civil union, or domestic partnership–but not a common law marriage) as an Illinois civil union.
