Texas, USA: Dallas Rapid Transit Board Puts Off Domestic Partnership Decision Pending Supreme Court Rulings

Written by scott on March 27th, 2013

Dallas Rapid Transit Agency Delays Domestic Partner benefits Discussion AgainIn an amazing show of timidity and cowardice, the Dallas Rapid Transit Board has once again delayed a decision on offering domestic partner benefits to partners of its gay and lesbian employees. Dallas Voice reports:

DART’s Board of Directors approved a motion Tuesday to postpone a decision on offering domestic partner benefits until after the U.S. Supreme Court rules in two marriage equality cases. The board voted 10-1 to postpone the issue until July during a committee-of-the-whole meeting on Tuesday afternoon. The vote to postpone consideration of DP benefits came one month after the committee-of-the-whole voted down a similar amendment 7-6 on Feb. 26.

What will their next excuse be?
