More Federal Benefits Extended to Same-Sex Couples

Same-sex couples are expected to see an extension of more federal benefits.

It will apply to federal workers, regardless of what state they live in.

Legally married couples are expected to be offered plans to let them take time off to care for sick spouses.

It comes nearly a year after the Supreme Court struck down a key portion of the Defense of Marriage Act.

Today’s move is the latest by the White House to further marriage equality.

The legality of same sex marriage is still pending in Michigan.
