According to a new Michigan law, government workers in the state will no longer receive health insurance coverage for their domestic partners.
Republican state representative Dave Agema introduced House Bill 4770 , which proposed to end the extension of state employees’ health insurance benefits to partners to whom they are not legally married. The bill was signed into law yesterday by governor Rick Snyder.
This bill has been criticized as an attack on same-sex families, and also on unmarried heterosexual couples who want to provide for their significant others. The law will affect over 33,000 employees of the state of Michigan as well as employees of Michigan State University. I smell a lawsuit, don’t you?
