"Colorado Civil Unions Advance To Full Senate"

Legislation to implement same-sex civil unions passed out of the Colorado Senate Appropriations Committee yesterday with 5-4 party-line vote. The bill is expected to pass the Democrat-controlled Senate some time next week, after which the Republican-controlled House will consider it. Some Republicans have indicated support, which means the bill could pass in the House if it survives a committee vote, but it was in a House committee that it died last year. An overwhelming majority of Coloradans — 62 percent — support civil unions.
