Can't believe that I didn't even realize that this had been signed by the Governor. It just goes to show what can be done when people are willing to work together. Or at least try. Back in March, the Sun-Times did a good piece on the backdrop of the Born-Alive bill. It's a little hard to read the pdf, but you can get the idea of what went down.
Kudos to my friend Rep. Brandon Phelps and everybody else that helped reach this historic outcome.
