The University of Georgia's University Council approved domestic partner benefits for employees yesterday, but the measure now goes to UGA President Michael Adams and implementation is far from assured.
Adams told the Athens Banner-Herald he wants to respond to the issue by the end of the academic year, but he needs to talk with the state Board of Regents, attorneys and financial advisers.
The executive committee of the University of Georgia’s University Council has voted to approve the wording of a resolution asking President Michael Adams to implement domestic partnership benefits for university faculty and staff.
The proposal, approved by the committee Sept. 13, asks for a “benefits package for eligible employees with domestic partners that matches the benefits and premiums that are currently being granted to employees with spouses.”
The Savannah City Council unanimously passed a vote today to authorize the city manager to implement a domestic partner program for city employees.
The vote was approved unanimously by the nine-member council.
At least someone on Oxendine’s campaign staff does. Oxendine included us in a recent mailer attacking fellow Republican gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel for her past connections to the Georgia Log Cabin Republicans and support of gay issues. See the full mailer here.
We appreciate the shout-out, Ox! (Even if you did make up a fake page to display)
