Governor of New Jersey Signs Civil Unions Bill

"We must recognize that many gay and lesbian couples in New Jersey are in committed relationships and deserve the same benefits and rights as every other family in this state. I believe very fundamentally in equal protection under the law and this legislation is about meeting that basic responsibility and honoring the commitments that individuals have made to each other." New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine signing legislation giving same-sex couples the right to enter into civil unions. December 21, 2006.
