Nevada Governor Will Veto Domestic Partnership Bill
"A bill that would allow same-sex couples to enter into domestic partnerships, with many of the rights of married couples, passed the Nevada Assembly Friday.
Senate Bill 283 now goes to the desk of Gov. Jim Gibbons, who has said he will veto it. The bill passed in the Senate 12-9.
Advocates for the bill have been working to try to find two votes to override Gibbons' veto.
Voters amended the constitution to ban same-sex marriage, voting overwhelmingly for the ban in 2000 and 2002."
