    Illinois lawmakers vote to allow gay marriage

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Illinois is set to become the 15th state and largest in the heartland to allow same-sex couples to marry.
    State senators approved technical changes Tuesday to a measure legalizing gay weddings, shortly after a historic favorable vote in the state House. The bill now goes to Gov. Pat Quinn, who has said he'll sign it into law.
    Illinois will start allowing same-sex marriages next summer.
    Fourteen states plus Washington D.C., currently allow same-sex marriage.
