The Indianapolis City-County Council has formally introduced the proposal to give benefits to city and county employees in domestic partnerships.

Listen:

No official action was taken on the proposal during Monday night's City-County Council meeting. Proposal 213 will now head to the council's Rules and Public Policy Committee for consideration.

The proposal would provide same-sex benefits for city and county employees involved in domestic partnerships. Democratic Councillor At-Large Zach Adamson, the council's first openly gay councillor, is a co-sponsor of the proposal and says it would cost one-half of one percent of what is already spent on health insurance.

The Rules and Public Policy Committee meets next on June 12th.
