The issue of domestic partner benefits for state employees may be decided in the November elections. If Republicans lose control of the Assembly in November, there's a better chance the Legislature will approve domestic partner benefits for state employees. So says GOP Representative Steve Nass, who adds, though, it's no guarantee. "There are Democrats that have a very difficult time saying yes to domestic partnerships," says Nass. "I believe they would be opposed to it, so the votes still may not be there." Nass, a leading opponent of domestic partner benefits, expects it'll be an issue in many of the fall campaigns.
