CT civil unions reach the one-yard line

by Jeremy Hooper

The Connecticut House is expected to pass legislation today that would grant gay couples in the state the right to have themselves a civil union. Yesterday, the Senate passed the 'mo-friendly bill by an encouraging margin of 27-9, and early word indicates that the House will vote similarly.

It ain't marriage, but civil unions do afford gay couples the same state rights (and hopefully all of the gifts) as traditional nuptials. So yea, this is a positive thing for gays in CT.

Good news feels so...foreign. But nice.
