This was a media update from Outfront Minnesota:
On Wednesday, March 12th, and Friday, March 14th, a bill passed two Minnesota legislative committees which would enable local governments to offer domestic partner benefits to their employees if they choose. The next step in both houses is the floor. We’ll update you on further developments.
BILL # 960
Passed the State and Local Government Operations and Oversight Committee on a voice vote 3-12-08
BILL # 1097
Passed the Local Government and Metropolitan Affairs Committee on a roll call vote 3-14-08
Bev Scalze in the past has voted for the Bachmann amendment. It's nice to see she did the right thing on this one.
