Bexar Commissioners Approve Same Sex Benefits

By Don Morgan 

Bexar County Commissioners have given the green light to a domestic benefits plan for county employees--which can include same sex couples.  

"It's up to the two people at home as to what their relationship is. We're not going to go and open up your bedroom doors--if you meet the criteria, you're going to be eligible--regardless of what your relationship is" said Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff following the vote on the plan, which the Judge said is patterned after one currently in place in El Paso County.  

"If you've been together a year, or you have a mortgage, or you have a lease hold interest or a title of a car--then, we're going to recognize you to have a "plus one adult" with you--and they would be covered under the health insurance" Wolff said.
