Wyoming, USA: After Rejecting Marriage Equality, Legislature Rejects Domestic Partnerships Too

Written by scott on January 31st, 2013

WyomingAccording to Joe.my.God, the Wyoming House has now rejected the proposed domestic ppartners bill:

The House voted 35-to-24 against the bill. It marked the first time that pro-gay legislation reached a full floor debate in the state Legislature. Proponents of the bill said that it would grant same-sex couples as well as other citizens a way to share their property and make health care decisions for each other. Opponents warned that the bill threatened to open the state to legal action seeking to force it to approve same-sex marriage.

This comes just days after a House committee killed the marriage equality bill but advanced this one.
