Breaking news: Today the Colorado Senate Appropriations Committee approved SB-11, the Colorado Civil Union Act. The bill now moves to the Senate floor for a vote.
If passed, SB-11 will provide committed gay and lesbian couples with critical legal protections and responsibilities, such as the ability to take family leave to care for a partner, to make medical and end-of-life decisions for a partner, to live together in a nursing home, and to adopt children together.
It’s critical that SB-11 passes the Senate and goes to the Colorado House for consideration. Contact your senator today to encourage them to support civil unions!
