COLORADO: Civil Unions Bill Advances

Colorado's civil unions bill advanced today in the state Senate where it is expected to be approved upon its third and final reading. One Colorado writes us to caution that the real battle will be in the state House, where the GOP holds a slight majority and may attempt to stall the bill in committee.
House Republican leadership has promised a fair hearing, and we look forward to working with them throughout the legislative process. It's critical that matters of great importance like civil unions be debated in the open. Issues like civil unions which have tremendous public support---including 72% of Coloradans and 61% of Republicans in the state---should be given an up-or-down vote by the entire House so that citizens may see where their representatives stand on this critical matter.
The bill should clear its final Senate hurdle this week.
