Two bills awaiting Jersey gov's signature; Two Bills also waiting patiently

by Jeremy Hooper

   Two pieces of legislation that would provide more benefits for domestic partners -- one involving inheritance and funeral rights and the other allowing municipalities and other public entities to extend health care benefits -- have been approved by the New Jersey legislature and are now on the desk of acting Governor Richard Codey, awaiting his autograph.

Codey is expected to sign both bills within the coming days, so that pesky cough, sniffle, or declining mortality problem that's been bothering you -- yea, ya might wanna hold off on dealing with that for a little while longer, Jersey friends. Patience, patients.
