Republican State Lawmaker Files Pro-Gay Bill

Busting wide open two common stereotypes, a pro-gay bill was introduced by a Republican legislator in Virginia’s lower house that would allow Virginia companies to provide life insurance to partners of gay employees. Virginia law currently restricts supplemental life insurance coverage to legal spouses and dependent children under 19 or 25 if the child is a full-time student. The new bill, filed by Delegate Tom Rust (R-Fairfax), would open that up to allow coverage to anyone “mutually… agreed upon by the insurer and the group policyholder.”

Please contact and thank Mr. Tom Rust for being proactive and supporting gay employees.

My mom works in HR for a big
airline company....She says that
they have insurance benifits for
partners of gay/lesbian employees...
She says too that it's hell when the
couples break up and they have to
change the policy....I told her it was
no different then a straight couple
doing that...She thought and then
said 'Yeah, you're right...'
