Arizona: Sedona approves civil unions for same-sex couples
Sedona has become the fourth Arizona city to approve civil unions for same-sex couples, joining Tucson, Bisbee, and Jerome.
The Sedona City Council voted 5-2 Tuesday night to allow civil unions regardless of gender in the red-rock country community in north-central Arizona.
Sedona’s city attorney says the ordinance borrows from local civil union laws already approved by Tucson, Bisbee and Jerome.
Sedona Mayor Rob Adams says approval of the civil union ordinance sends a message that love is love, “regardless if its two people of the same sex or not.”
