Senator. Ken Cheuvront, D-Phoenix, who met with the Arizona Civil Partnership leaders a few days ago, said civil partnerships would ensure gay couples hospital-visitation rights, inheritance rights and other rights without addressing the issue of marriage.
"What they're trying to do is put an initiative on board that would give people who are not married and who are in a committed relationships some of the same rights and responsibilities," said Cheuvront, who is gay.
