The Republican Study Committee of Colorado lost another member today -- state Rep. Kathleen Conti, who joined 10 House legislators who quit the ultra conservative club earlier this week. The exodus followed a House Republican Caucus meeting on Monday night when legislators rebelled against the RSCC for having characterized House Speaker Frank McNulty, Majority Leader Amy Stephens and other GOP lawmakers as RINOs (Republicans in name only).
It's not exactly a tidal wave. But the three Republican members of the House who have gone on record as supportive of state Senator Pat Steadman's civil unions bill suggests Democratic House sponsor Mark Ferrandino is right to be confident that the bill will pass if it could somehow climb over likely House committee hurdles.
Colorado Republican House Rep. Kathleen Conti is leaning strongly in support of civil unions. She said constituent enthusiasm and scripture won her over. “The outpouring I’ve had so far from my town halls leads me to support it,” she told the Colorado Statesman, referring to legislation introduced Monday by Sen. Pat Steadman that would grant same-sex couples who enter into a civil union the legal rights and responsibilities granted to married couples in the state.
