Homo Domestic Partnerships Approved
posted by March 1 at 12:37 PMon
State Sen. Ed Murray’s bill creating domestic partnerships for gay couples (and giving gay couples the same basic rights as married het couples, including hospital visitation, the right to make medical decisions for an incapacitated partner, the right to inherit property without a will, and the right to make funeral arrangements) just passed the state senate on a vote of 28 to 19. The bill is expected to pass the state house, and Gov. Christine Gregoire has said she will sign it into law.
