Adoption bill goes to summer study committee

SB3910, which would ban unmarried cohabiting couples is going to summer study. Sen. Paul Stanley (R-Germantown), the bill's sponsor, asked that it be sent off and that seemed fine with everyone on the Senate Judiciary committee.

While we can't be sure the bill is dead until the session ends next month, the state's GLBT community can rest a little easier this week.

A combination of intense contact with legislators and a hefty fiscal note attached to the bill gave it an uphill climb.
