City leaders vote against offering insurance to one adult, possibly same-sex partner

Aldermen yesterday voted 4-2, with one abstention, to limit that benefit to people whom Mississippi considers legally married.

Mayor Parker Wiseman is telling council members that he intends to veto the decision.

Aldermen had approved the change earlier this month, but those pushing repeal say Wiseman and administrators hid their true intent.
