Dallas Rapid Transit Agency Delays Domestic Partner benefits Discussion AgainThe Dallas Area Rapid Transit board finally approved domestic partner benefits for its employees.

The Dallas Voice reports:

After debating the issue for more than a year, DART passed what it called its Healthcare Equalization plan that gives its employees domestic partner benefits this evening. The vote was 9-3. Michael Cheney and Randall Chrisman, who walked out of the board to break quorum two weeks ago, voted against the plan along with Mark Enoch. The so-called plus-one plan allows any DART employee to put another adult in the household on the DART healthcare plan.

It’s great to see this finally pass after being dragged out for so long. Another small step in Texas.
