Wyoming committee approves domestic partnership bill

Timothy Kincaid

January 28th, 2013

Two bills came before the Wyoming House Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Committee today, one to enact marriage equality and the other to allow for a domestic partnership registry that appears to be ‘all but the name’.

The marriage bill failed to pass by a 5-4 vote, but the domestic partnership bill was approved 7-2 and will move on for debate on the House floor.

this is huge.

my admiration goes out to Connelly and others who didn’t fold before even seeing what kind of hand they held.

while i don’t know if this can pass the full house & senate, this committee vote shows that there’s no state in the union where partnership recognition (in some form) is inconceiveable.
