Senator Ann Rest (my senator) has indicated to me, in an email, that she will vote for the Minicipal Health Benefits bill when it comes to the floor of the Senate. Good for her. The bill gives Minnesota municipalities the option of offerring same-sex spousal benefits to their gay employees. Such benefits were made illegal by an infamous court ruling in the 1990s, Lilly vs Minneapolis.
One must wonder how many spouses of gay, city employees have gone without needed healthcare since that fucker, Lilly, brought his malicious case to court.
