Gibbons Loses, Domestic Partners Win in Nevada

Jim Gibbons has been called the "worst governor" and he's been making hay over Obama snubbing him.
On a 28-14 vote, the Assembly today overrode Gov. Jim Gibbons' veto of a bill to allow domestic partnerships in Nevada. With the override Saturday in the Senate, the domestic partners legislation will become law in Nevada on Oct. 1. The law allows same and opposite sex couples to secure domestic partnership contracts through the secretary of state's office. The contracts give couples the same rights and responsibilities as married couples. LVRJ
