According to a press release issued by Lambda Legal:
“On April 29, 2010, the last day of its legislative session, the Hawaii House of Representatives voted to grant the state’s straight and gay couples the right to join in civil union, following a similar vote earlier this session by the state senate. The historic vote took many observers by surprise.”
If not vetoed by the Governor, House Bill 444 will extend the same rights, benefits, protections and responsibilities of spouses in a marriage to partners in a civil union.
