Ban on domestic partner benefits passes House

With the House’s passage of HB4770 today, the state, public schools, counties and other local governments cannot provide medical benefits for domestic partners. The Senate already passed the bill, but with an amendment that would exempt universities. The House rejected the Senate version so now universities also cannot provide the benefits to its employees. The bill now goes to the Governor for his signature.

This legislation is discriminatory and is another slam at local control. Contact Gov. Snyder at 517-373-3400 or at and tell him this bill will not create jobs or help Michigan’s economy. Urge him to veto the bill.
