Hawaii House Approves Civil Unions

Jim Burroway

April 29th, 2010

A bill providing for civil unions for same-sex couples has passed the Hawaii House of Representatives this even on a 31-20 vote. The Hawaii Senate passed the bill in January with a veto-proof majority, but the House at that time chickened out on taking a vote. But now that the House has finally grown a pair, the bill now goes to the governor’s desk. Gov. Linda Lingle (R) has not indicated whether she will sign it or not. The House’s vote is shy of a veto-proof majority.

Apparently not as In the reign as someone called them to be.

It says something that in a state that only has a handful of Republican legislators, they still can’t get a veto-proof majority. Here’s hoping the governor signs it.
