Nevada Gov. Threatens Veto of Domestic Partnership Bill

Nevada's Republican Governor Jim Gibbons has made his position on domestic partnerships very clear, telling the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "I just don't believe it."

The bill would give same-sex couples “same rights, protections, benefits, responsibilities, obligations and duties” as married couples in the state. The governor remarked the domestic partnerships is just another way of saying marriage and referred to what happened in California as grounds for his decision.

Contact the governor and urge him to support the bill.

Openly gay Nevada Sen. David Parks wrote the bill. He told the Review-Journal, “I see the bill as only being on first base. It has a long way to go before getting to the governor.”

Voice your support for the senator.
