November 5, 2009
Rep. Tammy Baldwin’s (D-Wis.) bill that that would provide benefits to domestic partners of federal employees will soon be marked up by a House committee and could hit the floor by the end of 2009. Under current law, same-sex couples working at the federal level are ineligible to receive the same healthcare, retirement and family leave benefits afforded to their married counterparts. [Link]
