On Wednesday, the Reno City Council voted unanimously to approve extending health insurance benefits to the registered domestic partners of City employees. The ACLU of Nevada applauds the Council's vote and hopes that other cities in Nevada will do the same.

"The principal issue of human dignity, human relations, we simply don’t put a precise price tag on those things," said Lee Rowland, Northern Coordinator for the ACLU of Nevada. "Now, any couple can share their life together."
