Nevada Gov Vetoes Domestic Partners Bill

Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons has vetoed his legislature's domestic partners bill, saying it conflicts with the state's 2002 constitutional amendment that only relationships between men and women would be recognized. Gibbons says that gay couples should resort to legal contracts between themselves if they want to protect their assets and ensure medical decision-making rights. It's unknown if the legislature will attempt to override Gibbons' veto. Meanwhile any hetero couple can meet at the craps table and have their drive-thru wedding five minutes later.
