From this article about having a bill for a "partnership registry" in Utah, apparently this lawmaker thinks insurance companies should have to allow people to add anybody (e.g. parent or sibling) to one's health insurance as part of the same bill to allow addition a gay partner to health insurance.


For example, Seelig has an aging mother and a sister who is losing her eyesight, both of whom may at some point live with her. "It would be great, a real help, if I could get both of them on my health insurance," Seelig said.

I guess she wants all health insurance costs to immediately double or triple.

I honestly expected to read that Seelig was a conservative trying to kill the a gay partnership rights bill by taking an absurd interpretation of the principle behind the bill.
