Obama to Extend Benefits to Federal Workers' Partners

By Kerry Eleveld

An Obama administration official has confirmed to The Advocate that President Barack Obama will be signing a presidential memorandum Wednesday to provide benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees.

The signing is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. in the Oval Office, and the president is scheduled to make brief remarks.

It would be fulfilling a campaign promise, so I think it is going to happen. From there to more State- Department-specific benefits will only be a short step, I hope. Fingers crossed.
