Libby Workman, your letter points out just one of the issues with Representative Todd's proposal. Unlike Arizona, where they are always in the same time zone as some of their neighboring states (even though which ones varies), the proposal to keep TN on CDT/EDT year round would mean that Eastern TN would be a "time zone island" for four months of the year. No other state in the country would be on the same time as Eastern TN. The time zone would be shared with Puerto Rico, however.

If somebody wanted to commit benefits fraud, it would seem that a sham marriage would be the more attractive option. Unlike Domestic Partner benefits, with a marriage there's no 1-year waiting period and the city contribution to the premiums is not taxable income.

Private employers and government employers in other locations have provided Domestic Partner benefits for more than 20 years. Fraud hasn't been a big issue.

Mr. Orr ...Please review the opinion from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California at:

https://ecf.cand.uscourts.gov/cand/09cv2292/files/09cv2292-ORDER.pdf

It contains a very robust analysis of how the subject of your comment leads to the subject of mine.
