Green Bay Won’t Try Killing WI’s Domestic Partnership Registry. But The New Gov Will

Green Bay City Councilman Shae Sortwell is not going to push forward with a plan to get the Wisconsin city to join a lawsuit brought by Wisconsin Family Action that seeks to undo the state’s domestic partnership registry. That’s a 180-turn from Sortwell’s previous position, where he wanted Green Bay to have a role in challenging the registry as a violation of Wisconsin’s same-sex marriage ban. But don’t get too excited just yet: Governor-elect Scott Walker, on the campaign trail, vowed to kill the registry — and that appears to be the main reason Sortwell decided to drop the issue.
