Chattanooga to vote on benefits for domestic partners

This summer Chattanooga could become the latest Tennessee city to give benefits to domestic partners of city employees.

After a legal fight over the wording of the ballot question, a judge decided to let the original wording stand in the upcoming election.

City Council members said the question written by the Hamilton County Election Commission was too vague.

In November, Chattanooga became the third city in Tennessee to vote to expand benefits to domestic partners of city employees, but opponents of the law gathered enough petition signatures to force a referendum.

That question will go on the August 7th ballot.
