Senate approves civil unions

DENVER — The Colorado Senate gave final approval to a bill Monday to allow same-sex couples to enter into civil unions.

The measure passed on a mostly partisan 21–14 vote. Durango Sen. Ellen Roberts, whose district includes Montrose County, was the only Republican to join Democrats in voting for it.

The bill now heads to the House, where House Speaker Mark Ferrandino will shepherd it through the House Judiciary Committee before bringing it to the floor.

The Denver Democrat said he hopes to have the bill approved and sent to the governor’s desk by the end of the month or early March.
