Domestic Partnerships in Wisconsin

Wisconsin Public Radio ran a short story on the number of couples who have actually registered a domestic partnership. The story offered two points that I wanted to share. One, the recent law that was passed was a state law, and does not offer FEDERAL benefits to domestic partners. And two, for the law to give protections, the couples must register. I was surprised by the number of couples that have registered -- to me, it seemed low. To listen to the story, click here.
More than 1,500 same sex couples have registered as domestic partners in Wisconsin since it became law a year ago. Laura Podgornik reports from Superior.
