Congratulations Hawaii - Legislature Passes Civil Unions

Last night the Hawaii House passed House Bill 444 -- a civil unions measure that advocates have been pushing for months.  The bill now goes to Republican Governor Linda Lingle.  HRC is proud to have worked with Equality Hawaii on this issue and congratulates them on a huge victory! In January, the bill was indefinitely postponed in a move that appeared to foreclose the possibility of further action this session.  Read HRC and Equality Hawaii's joint press release.
