Salt Lake City Utah Mayor Rocky Anderson passes a bill giving full benefits to all Gay government employees in Salt Lake.
 



Salt Lake Tribune
At noon in City Hall, the Salt Lake City mayor will quietly sign an executive order to offer a handful of health benefits to gay and unmarried heterosexual partners of city employees.

It also places the capital in the history books for becoming the first government in Utah to offer domestic-partner benefits, following the failed attempt in Salt Lake County in July.

By signing an executive order, Anderson avoids the emotional debate that derailed the domestic-partner package in the county, where talk focused on gay marriage..

I am ~SO HAPPY~ that super conservative Salt Lake City is paving the way for equality and human rights by this action. I am proud to be living in such a forward thinking community!
