The Colorado House Appropriations Committee just advanced the civil unions bill with a vote of 9-4, including a yes vote from Republican Rep. Cheri Gerou, co-sponsor of the bill. This was the final committee vote the bill required, meaning it will advance to the full House next week. The Senate already passed the bill, Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) has committed to signing it, and 70 percent of Colorado voters support it.
