Kudos to Allentown, PA!

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Allentown has now joined Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Harrisburg in offering domestic partner health benefits to the city’s LGBT employees. The city has also extended family and bereavement leave to cover domestic partners. However, the Allentown Morning Call reports that discussions are still ongoing with the relevant unions to extend benefits to police and firefighters. And a vote on extending pension benefits to domestic partners was apparently put on hold due to concerns regarding the permissibility of extending such benefits under state law.
