Lawmakers may be setting up lawsuit by setting up same-sex partners register
State legislative leaders might be setting up a lawsuit by supporting Gov. Jim Doyle's plan to let same-sex partners register for benefits.
The two Democratic chairmen of the Joint Finance Committee said last week they'll include the governor's plan in their version of the new state budget. And they expect it to pass.
For now, the Wisconsin Family Council is lobbying lawmakers to kill the measure.
