Richmond City Council to Consider Recognizing Same-Sex Unions

Richmond City Council is considering adding benefits to the spouses of city employees in same-sex marriages.

The bill would expand the city's definition of spouse to include “recognizing spouses in same sex marriages that have lawfully occurred in other states.”

A public hearing on the ordinance is scheduled to take place during the council's September 9 meeting. Interested citizens who wish to speak will be given an opportunity to do so.
