Senate Bill 183 - Domestic Partnerships

The Domestic Partnership bill was introduced today.

Senator Peter Wirth and Representative Mimi Stewart are the sponsors for Senate Bill 183.

Domestic partnerships provide basic legal protections necessary for families to care for their loved ones. This legal recognition not only keeps children safe but also offers them financial and emotional security. Tangible benefits for families include hospital visitation rights, the ability to obtain for partners, and family or bereavement leave.

We will let you know when the committee hearings will be scheduled.

Please join us at Backroad Pizza ~ Santa Fe

1807 Second Street (across from the 2nd Street Brewery)
All attendees will receive a slice of pizza and a soda.

We will be having a phone-a-thon to inform people about our upcoming events to advocate for domestic partnership legislation.
