City of Chattanooga Health Benefits for Domestic Partners Referendum (August 2014)
|Voting on Labor and Unions|
|Not on ballot|
This measure is a veto referendum on an ordinance passed by the city council in Chattanooga, the fourth largest city in Tennessee, that would allow health benefits to be given to any domestic partner of a city employee. Immediately on the approval of this ordinance, a group of Chattanooga residents began collecting signatures to put this ordinance to a vote of the people in an effort to repeal it. They were successful in their petition effort, giving the city council a chance to either repeal the ordinance themselves or put it before voters in a referendum measure. Through inaction, they chose the latter option.
