One Colorado to host rally, press conference urging full House debate on civil union bill

One Colorado to host rally, press conference urging full House debate on civil union bill:

Earlier today, the GOP Speaker told the Denver Post the full house may not get to vote on the bill. One Colorado is planning a rally tomorrow. Their Facebook invite included the following:


“Civil unions has received bipartisan support in the Colorado Senate and in two House Committees. But Republican leadership in the House is threatening to kill the bill by keeping it from being voted on by all our Representatives.

On Tuesday, May 8, supporters of the legislation will rally on the West Steps of the State Capitol and call for a full up-or-down vote in the House.

If we want civil unions to be debated in the House (where it has enough votes to pass), we need to show House leadership how widespread support for civil unions is — so please join us!”
