MCG faculty want domestic partner health benefits

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The Medical College of Georgia is joining other schools in asking the Board of Regents to allow health insurance for domestic partners.

Bill Andrews, vice chairman of the school's academic council, said that, in an online poll, faculty voted by more than 2-to-1 for a resolution asking the regents to allow the benefits.

MCG President Dan Rahn plans to present the resolution to the Board of Regents, the appointed body that oversees the 35 public colleges and universities in the University System of Georgia.

The University of Georgia and Georgia State University took similar resolutions to the university system last year, but the issue has not yet been put on the regents' meeting agenda.\
