The domestic-partnerships bill in the house currently has 56 cosponsors. Provided it gets out of committee and then passes the rules committee, it only needs 50 votes to pass on the floor.
The domestic-partnerships bill in the senate currently has 21 cosponsors. (Yesterday, the Senate Goverment Operations and Elections Committee held a hearing on the bill.) If it gets out of committee and then the rules committee, it needs 25 votes in the full senate to pass. It’s just four votes away.
Basically, we’re four votes away from a domestic-partnership bill for gays and lesbians… and um, het seniors.
