The Colorado Senate Appropriations Committee has voted in favor of a bill, nicknamed “Colorful Colorado,” legalizing civil unions in the state. The Committee approved the bill with a 4-3 vote. The legislation will now proceed to the full Senate for review.

Executive Director Brad Clark of One Colorado, a statewide advocacy organization dedicated to securing and protecting equality and opportunity for LGBT Coloradans and their families says that, “We’re advocating for our families — for the couples that have been together 40 years, for the kids whose parents aren’t treated equally in the eyes of the law, for the gay student who finally sees his government recognizing who he is.”
