Don't let Bill James repeal domestic partner benefits in Mecklenburg County

North Carolina's recent constitutional amendment was aimed at preventing same-sex marriage. But less than 24 hours after its adoption, Mecklenburg County Commissioner Bill James is attempting to void domestic partner benefits that employees of Mecklenburg County, who are unmarried and in same-sex relationships, can currently provide to their partners. Don't let Bill James and other members of the Mecklenburg County Commission take away people's benefits. Adults and children depend on these benefits for their health care coverage. If Mecklenburg County provided these benefits to unwed couples before Amendment One passed, it should continue to provide them now that those couples' unions can never be legally recognized.
