San Antonio plans to offer domestic partner benefits

San Antonio, TX and its largest utilities – the city’s Water System and CPS Energy – may extend benefits to domestic partners of employees. Mayor Julián Castro said the benefits will help the city as a governmental entity and as a community. “For the city as an employer, it means we can be more competitive for great talent,” Castro said. “For the San Antonio community, it means there are no second-class citizens. We’re a cosmopolitan city and we value everyone in our community.” Providing the benefits will add San Antonio to a list of 185 cities, counties and states that provide domestic partner benefits, according to the Human Rights Campaign.
