The Nevada Senate has voted to override Gov. Jim Gibbons' veto of a measure that gives domestic partners, whether gay or straight, many of the rights and benefits that Nevada offers to married couples. The 14-7 Senate vote Saturday — the required two-thirds majority with no votes to spare — must be affirmed by the Assembly to enact the measure into law over the governor's objections. [link]
