STEVENS POINT, Wis. — The city of Stevens Point is considering offering domestic partner benefits to its workers.
Stevens Point Journal Media reports (http://spjour.nl/140wsmq ) the City Council will consider allowing workers to cover their domestic partners under their health insurance at its Monday meeting. The move would only apply to same-sex couples.
A handful of other Wisconsin communities already offer domestic partner benefits, including the state's largest cities — Milwaukee, Madison and Racine.
Stevens Point Mayor Andrew Halverson says offering health coverage for city workers' partners is the right thing to do.
