From the Herald-Leader:
FRANKFORT - Universities and other public agencies should not be allowed to offer health benefits to unmarried domestic partners of employees, a Senate committee said yesterday in approving a bill its sponsor said was not gay bashing……
Eight members of the Senate State and Local Government Committee voted for the bill. Two Democrats -- Walter Blevins of West Liberty and Julian Carroll of Frankfort -- did not vote.
Ok so I’m a little confused about this story. If Blevins and Carroll didn’t vote that leaves nine members on the committee. So who voted against the bill or joined Carroll and Blevins in not voting? Or maybe there was just a math error in the story.
Let’s don’t worry about the math, maybe everyone should call the Honorable Senators and ask them why they voted the way they did on this bill.
