Nevada overrides Veto by NV Republican Governor Jim Gibbons! Domestic partnership becomes law!

The Assembly voted 28-14 Sunday to override Gov. Jim Gibbons' veto and to change state law so that domestic partners, whether gay or straight, have many of the rights and benefits that Nevada offers to married couples.

The Assembly's vote -- the bare two-thirds majority needed -- followed the state Senate's vote a day earlier to enact the measure into state lawbooks over the conservative Republican governor's objections.

Assemblywoman Sheila Leslie, D-Reno, termed SB283 the most important civil rights legislation she had voted upon while serving in the Legislature, adding the law change will ensure "justice for all, not justice for some."

Leslie said proponents of the new law were asking "that their government give them the ability to choose who they will live with and whom they will love."

SB283 provides that domestic partners have the same rights as married couples in matters such as community property and responsibility for debts. It also prohibits discrimination against domestic partners. Link


Another State recognizes the rights of Gay couples!
This is not the M word - but a step in the right direction to give equal rights to all citizens!
Nevada will be the 17th state to recognize relationships of gay and Lesbian couples under state law. This law will take effect Oct 1, 2009.

Face it! This country is evolving to accept Gays and Lesbians as real people, real citizens!
More and more States are coming to terms to embrace this fact!

The conservative stance to define marriage as strictly between man and woman will one day have to come to grips with man and man, woman and woman - or die out!
