Indianapolis City-County Council members voted to provide same-sex benefits for city-county employees. The measure now goes to Mayor Greg Ballard.
The proposal would provide benefits to same-sex partners of city and county employees.
Brown, Floyd, Marion, Monroe and Vanderburgh counties have a higher percent of same-sex households than the national average.
A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Alisha Brennon, whose partner, Christina Santiago, was killed in the accident.
