The Texas Supreme Court is to reconsider same-sex benefits across the state.
The all-Republican state high court has agreed to hear reconsider a Houston case challenging the city’s benefits policy for married same-sex couples.
In October, Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed an appeal asking the Supreme Court to reconsider the same-sex benefits case.
Opponents of same-sex benefits may say that gay people have a fundamental right to marry but no right to equal benefits.
So stay tuned...
