A domestic-partnership bill advanced through a lower committee on its way to the full senate Thursday, according to The Advocate.

Gov. Bill Richardson supports the bill, which would be one of the most distinct domestic-partnership bills in the country, according to The Advocate’s interview with David Masci of the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

The bill must make its way through two committees before being voted on in the full senate. Judiciary committee member Michael Sanchez moved the bill directly to the finance committee.
