VA: local option bill SB 51 on domestic partner benefits
Equality Virginia is advising voters to contact their state representatives to pass a bill that allows local governments to grant same-sex domestic partner benefits when they choose to do so (which Arlington would do).
Here is the main link for the bill SB 51 Health insurance; extension of coverage funded by localities.
Here is the Equality Virginia fact sheet.
Virginia, of course, has to deal with the Marshall-Newman admendment which passed in 2006. My link for that is here.
