Tennessee, USA: University of Memphis Votes 33-0 for Benefits for Same Sex CouplesThe Faculty Senate at the University of Memphis, voted on Tuesday without much discussion, to unanimously support equal benefits for couples in same-sex partnerships.

The first motion to be discussed at the meeting, which passed by 33-0, was intended to encourage the Tennessee Board of Regents staff to evaluate the advantages of a resolution by the University of Tennessee-Knoxville Faculty Senate, which asks for equal benefits for staff in same-sex partnerships, reported the Commercial Appeal.

A second motion, which passed 30-3 votes, was to set up a committee to draft a similar resolution to that of the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, which would likely be reviewed by the senate in January.
