Civil Unions Bill Signed Into Law

Yesterday Connecticut became the third state to legally recognize same-sex couples:

The landmark law permits same-sex partners to enter into civil unions and grants nearly all of the rights and responsibilities available to married couples.
The new law extends to gay couples the rights and responsibilities married couples have under 588 state statutes, including the right to file a joint tax return and make medical decisions for a partner.
