    Rhode Island Order on Gay Unions

    Gov. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island on Monday ordered all state agencies to recognize same-sex marriagesperformed elsewhere and to afford those couples many of the same rights and benefits that heterosexual couples get.By issuing an executive order, Mr. Chafee, an independent, reaffirmed a 2007 opinion by the state attorney general, which he said state agencies had followed inconsistently. An effort to legalize same-sex marriage in Rhode Island failed last year, with the legislature approving civil unions for gay couples instead.

    Oh. For some reason, I thought this was about, like, gay people forming labor unions...and I thought, this could be interesting...
