The Chatham County in Georgia plans to bring more benefits to the partners of LGBT employees.

The County Commission heard the case in a first reading and a second reading and the vote are scheduled for February 13. It seems that there will be no opposition to this measure.

These benefits will be extended to unmarried heterosexual couples in a domestic partnership too.

Chatham County would join the city of Smyrna in Cobb County, Savannah and Athens-Clarke County that already offer these benefits to same-sex couples who married in other states because Georgia does not allow equal marriage yet.
