Kulongoski signs our bills in law

SB2, the non-discrimination bill and HB 2007 the domestic partnerships bill were signed this morning by Governor Kulongoski. Both go into effect Jan 1 so get your white dresses ready.

According to The Oregonian:

In Oregon, a same sex couple will register in their county to enter a domestic partnership contract that will give them all of the state benefits of marriage. It also gives them the responsibilities – including the possibility of having to pay child and partner support in the event of a dissolution.

…if not access to Social Security…

Below I’ve included some video from The Oregonian of Gov Ted and others celebrating:
