STEVENS POINT (AP) - The city of Stevens Point is considering offering domestic partner benefits to its workers.
Stevens Point Journal Media reports 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.
