SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- State lawmakers are one step closer to asking you to support a minimum wage of $10 an hour.

House Bill 3814 passed the Illinois House and is headed to the Illinois Senate.

If it becomes law, an advisory referendum would be put on the ballot to ask voters to raise the minimum wage.

Governor Pat Quinn says he supports the bill and is committed to raising wages.
