Colorado Passes Civil Unions

Very good news from my former home:

A bill allowing gay couples to form civil unions passed the Senate on Monday morning on a 21-14 vote, with Sen. Ellen Roberts of Durango providing the lone Republican “yes” vote.

The Senate on Friday gave initial approval to the bill. Democrats control the Senate 20-15, so there was no doubt about the outcome of the legislation — Senate Bill 11.

That’s a real Rocky Mountain high.
