There is a new study that claims the State of Illinois could net a much that much, if it legalizes same sex marriage.
Of course, the economics will not be the deciding factor either way. But it is something to think about, especially in a cash strapped state like Illinois.
I spoke to a number of people/groups who are against same sex marriage. They pointed to a potential cost increase in benefits, services, etc. I did not find any studies on that.(2:21)
