On Wednesday, January 9, 2013, Senators Pat Steadman and Lucia Guzmán introduced Senate Bill 11 in the Colorado Senate. Senate Bill 11 will allow civil unions for gay and lesbian couples and provide them with many of the same rights married couples enjoy. After being defeated last year in dramatic fashion at the end of the Congressional session, the civil unions bill is expected to pass easily this year through both the House and the Senate and Governor Hickenlooper, a strong supporter of civil unions, has indicated he will sign the bill as soon as it reaches his desk.
