Report: Obama To Extend Benefits To Same-Sex Federal Employees

By  | 

The details are slim, so I’m just going to reprint the entire article from the AP:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama plans to extend health care and other benefits to the gay and lesbian partners of federal employees. White House officials say Obama plans to announce decision on Wednesday in the Oval Office. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the president had not yet made the announcement.

The move would give partners of federal employees access to health care and financial benefits such as relocation fees for moves. Officials say Obama would detail more details of the decision on Wednesday.

What to say to this except, “It’s about time.”

More as it develops…
