Colorado To Introduced Civil Unions Bill

Written by 




Perhaps Colorado will pass a law allowing civil unions for same-sex couples.


It's hard to enjoy the news as we fight to obtain marriage equality but we can not deny the fact that some couples would like to quickly have more rights like Amy McClintock and her partner, Cindiman Pinneke, who have spent thousands of dollars in fees to secure legal protections automatically afforded to married couples.


"We’re tired of being second-class citizens," McClintock told The Durango Herald.


Of course, we always expect the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court which could determine if states like Colorado can prohibit marriage equality.

But wednesday, the civil unions bill will be introduced in the Colorado legislature controlled by Democrats.

Contrary to last year, the bill could then pass the Senate and the House, also in Democratic control.
