Same Sex Partner Benefits for Austin City Employees?
The Statesman reports today that Council Member Brewster McCracken is about ready to propose same-sex partner benefits to city employees. The time has come. When first proposed in 1993 it may have been a little ahead of its time, but Austin is a city that’s behind the curve on offering same-sex partner benefits. We’re glad to see it cropping up on the agenda. Give your council member a call and let them know that ‘fair is fair’ and that’s what Austin is all about.
