Only governor to sign civil unions without a court order

Protecting civil rights - for all. Governor Rell signed into law landmark civil unions legislation, declaring Connecticut will not tolerate discrimination in any form. The Governor received the Log Cabin Republican’s “Spirit of Lincoln Award” - the group’s highest honor - in recognition of “her steadfast support of the gay and lesbian citizens of Connecticut and for being the only U.S. governor to sign civil unions legislation without a court order.”
