Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel this week said he hopes the state of Illinois will follow New York and legalize marriage for same-sex couples.

President Barack Obama’s former Chief of Staff told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that marriage equality is a “significant issue.”

“I would hope that the state would move in that direction,” Emanuel said. “Tremendous progress has been made across the country on a value statement and I think that’s very important.”

Watch:

Illinois became the 12th U.S. state to grant legal recognition to same-sex couples as a new civil unions law took effect on June 1.
