Nevada DPs Pass out of House Judiciary

Timothy Kincaid

Per the SJ Mercury News

On a party-line vote, the Assembly Judiciary Committee voted Tuesday for a bill to give domestic partners, whether gay or straight, many of the rights and benefits that Nevada offers to married couples.

Republicans were outvoted by Democrats who control the committee as SB283 moved to the full Assembly. If approved there, it must return to the Senate, where it was backed previously, for a review of Assembly amendments. Gov. Jim Gibbons has threatened to veto the plan if it reaches his desk.

I thought the gov supported DP benefits. Am I missing something here?

Um, you must be confused, the Governor is against Gay Marriage and Civil Unions, and probably partial-rights unions too.
