Janesville City Council Force Taxpayers To Fund Domestic Partner Benefits

This week the Janesville City Council voted 6-1 to force taxpayers to fund Domestic Partner Benefits for city employees.  This applies to both same-sex and opposite-sex partners.  The Janesville Gazette  reports “the city would pay an additional $10,548 for each single employee who claims a domestic partner”.  This new benefit will fall upon the backs of the taxpayers.  The lone council member voting “No” was DuWayne Severson.
