Arizona Will Bar Health Coverage for Partners of Homosexual State Workers

Court House News:  “A new Arizona law unconstitutionally killed domestic-partner health insurance benefits for homosexual state employees, a gay rights group claims in Federal Court. Lambda Legal Defense says Arizona House Bill 2013 eliminates family coverage for lesbian and gay state workers by limiting coverage to spouses.  Lambda wants Gov. Jan Brewer and the Department of Administration and Personnel Board enjoined from enforcing HB 2013 because it violates the 14th Amendment by denying the 10 plaintiffs “equal compensation for equal work” and “discriminatorily inflicts” financial burdens and health problems.”
