Issue 1 Now In Effect

From the Hannah Report:

Issue 1, the constitutional amendment that prohibits unmarried couples from receiving "partner" benefits from the state or other public entities, went into effect across the state of Ohio Thursday. The amendment was passed November 2 by nearly 62 percent of those who voted, despite the fact that it was opposed by Gov. Bob Taft, both of Ohio's U.S. senators, several members of the state's congressional delegation, mayors of all the major cities, AARP, the League of Women Voters of Ohio, and the Inter- University Council, among others.
