Hawaii Governor Praises Civil Union Bill

“I have always believed that civil unions respect our diversity, protect people's privacy, and reinforce our core values of equality and aloha.

“I appreciate all the time and effort invested by those who shared their thoughts and concerns regarding civil unions in Hawai‘i. This has been an emotional process for everyone involved, but that process is now ended. Everyone has been heard; all points of view respected.

“For me, this bill represents equal rights for all the people of Hawai‘i.”

Governor Neil Abercrombie, February 16, 2011, on passage of Civil Unions Bill.
