Democrats restarted the push to legalize same-sex marriage in Illinois Tuesday, setting the stage for a potential Valentine's Day vote in the full Senate. A Senate committee approved legalizing same-sex marriage by a 9-5 vote. Of suburban members on the panel, Republican state Sen. Matt Murphy of Palatine and Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont voted against the plan. Democratic state Sens. Terry Link of Waukegan and Don Harmon of Oak Park voted for it.
