Pennsylvania Extends Same-Sex Benefits to Education Employees

from Citizenlink

The Pennsylvania Board of Governors last Thursday voted in favor of extending health-care benefits to same-sex partners of faculty members in the state's higher education system. Gov. Ed Rendell also voted in favor of the scheme.

Diane Gramley, the head of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, told OneNewsNow that offering the same benefits that are given to spouses is a step toward redefining marriage.

Taxpayers and students will foot the bill. The plan may increase tuition.
