Bisbee Approves Civil Unions For Gay Couples; Defies Arizona Attorney General [View all]

small bit of progress for AZ


According to the Sierra Vista Herald, the Bisbee City Council approved the ordinance with a 5-2 vote after holding an emotional three-hour hearing attended by more than 100 people.

The former mining community-turned-artist's haven is made up of about 5,600 people.

Voters in 2008 approved a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a heterosexual union.

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne warned that the ordinance would be unconstitutional and promised to go to court to block its start. <snip>
