    Connecticut civil unions bill ready for Senate

    Gay News reports that Connecticut’s civil unions bill has passed its three General Assembly committees and is ready to go to the State Senate:

    Gov. M. Jodi Rell has endorsed the concept of civil unions, though she said last week she would like the bill amended to define marriage as between a man and a woman. Rell has not said failure to adopt such an amendment would provoke a veto.

    If the bill becomes law, Connecticut would become the first state to allow same-sex civil unions without the threat of court action.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?

      It will likely go through. People in this state are more concerned about additional fake Indian tribes opening casinos than they are about this issue.

    2. Sean Kinsell says:

      I hope so. The marriage debate has brought out the worst in everyone.

    3. John says:

      Rell’s a Republican replacement for the governor who went to jail today. If she backs it, it will go through. There are very few religious conservatives in this state – the Republican party here is mostly South Park Republican.

      I haven’e heard squat about this on the local radio, everything has been about the AG celebrating that the BIA turned down the latest fake Indian tribe that was making land claims and asking for recognition.
