By a vote of 6-4, Cuyahoga County commissioners have approved a measure that will provide health insurance benefits to the children of gay partners of county employees.
The benefits actually exceed those available to unmarried heterosexual couples. Supporters point out that heterosexual couples may legally marry to get the benefits, but gay couples may not.
The county estimates the expanded benefits will add about $300,000 to its annual health insurance costs.
Cuyahoga is the state’s largest county. The action may set a precedent for other counties to follow.
