Unfortunately, here in Nevada we have a constitutional amendment that defines marriage as that between a man and woman, so we’ll be stuck in the dark ages as other states (since when is Iowa considered progressive?) pass us by. But the one thing we CAN and MUST do is urge our Legislature to support SB283, the Domestic Partnership bill.
The time is NOW!
Here’s some info from The Gay and Lesbian Center of Southern Nevada:
This week, the Nevada State Senate will vote on SB 283, a bill to create a Domestic Partnership registration in Nevada. This bill will give GLBT couples the legal recognition and protections they need to make health care decisions for each other, own homes together, inheritance protection and more. Below you will find a link to the Nevada Legislature’s website where you can share your support for this bill with senators.
