TN city allowing benefits for same sex couples

(WMC-TV) - One Tennessee city is making history by allowing benefits for city employees in same sex relationships.

Supporters who attended the board of commissioners meeting in Collegedale, TN are characterizing it as an 'emotional' event.

"It's crazy that a small town like this, whose background is southern Adventist, would be the first one. The first city in Tennessee to do this," stated supporter Krista Cooper.

Many residents did voice their opposition at Tuesday's meeting. The resolution goes into effect immediately.
