…justice for all

The District Council is considering a bill that would hugely expand gay rights, though not actually legalize gay marriage.

The measure would create inheritance and tax rights, as well as create the equivalent of prenups and alimony in the event of a breakup, and it would also apply to unmarried heterosexual couples.

What’s the holdup for this and for actually legalizing gay marriage? The Council has to worry about the wrath of Congress, which can overturn laws passed by the council. (Yay representative democracy, or whatever…)
