Wednesday the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee passed the Domestic Partners Benefits & Obligations Act (H.R. 2517), authored by Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI). Under the legislation, same-gender domestic partners of federal employees living together in a committed relationship would be eligible for health benefits, long-term care, Family & Medical Leave & federal retirement benefits, among others. The domestic partners of federal employees would also be subject to the same responsibilities that apply to the spouses of federal employees, such as anti-nepotism rules & financial disclosure requirements. “Today’s actions mark another significant step in our march toward LGBT equality,” said Congresswoman Baldwin, Co-Chair of the House LGBT Equality Caucus. “Our movement is gaining momentum around the country & Congress is following the will of the people. Today is a day to celebrate yet another milestone & recognize anew that ‘the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.'”
