Palm Beach Increases Domestic-Partner Benefits

From The Advocate, here.

The Palm Beach County School District has agreed to insure the children of its employees' domestic partners.

As Floridians prepare to decide on Amendment 2 -- an initiative that could constitutionally ban same-sex marriage in the state -- on November 4, Palm Beach made a bold statement of gay tolerance by offering increased domestic-partner benefits. . . .

The Palm Beach school board last year adjusted its health insurance rates to allow employees with domestic partners to pay the same premiums as married partners.
