Group works to keep Domestic Partner benefit

Posted: Updated:

Two weeks, after the Chattanooga City Council voted to extend domestic benefits to city employees, the people have spoken, in a collected effort to overturn the city's decision.

But those in favor of benefits for domestic partners of city employees are staying united in their fight.

The 'Tennessee Equality Project' gathered Wednesday night at Blue Orleans where they vowed to continue to seek support, while the petitioners who have gathered thousands of signatures calling for a vote  next year are working to keep the momentum going.    

City Council has not yet decided the exact steps moving forward, but the vote will be on the ballot in August. It still has the chance to vote to appeal the ordinance. If it is not appealed, it will be on the ballot August 2014.
