Texas Rules Against Benefits for Same-Sex Spouses


Todd Solomon said that, even though a Texas court upheld a challenge to the city of Houston’s same-sex employee benefits provisions, most employers would not change same-sex benefits. Mr. Solomon contended that the case’s impact “is really limited to things like state government benefits and wouldn’t trickle into the private sector. It would be such a retreat from where the momentum is going. If anything, [the private sector] has been adding more benefits for same-sex couples.”
