Should the General Assembly be debating and voting on same-sex civil unions in the last month of its 2011 session?

Posted 6/6/11

Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee declared in his first address to the General Assembly that he wanted to make same-sex marriage legal in Rhode Island, but that does not seem to be in the offing.

Instead the Legislature is talking about making civil unions the law of the state, generating opposition from conservative social groups, and begging the question, are there more important issues – for instance the state budget – that should be front and center in the Statehouse as the 2011 session moves toward the finish line?
