The Colorado Senate Appropriations Committee has approved a civil unions bill, SB 11, by a 4-3 vote, ThinkProgress reports. The Senate Judiciary Committee also advanced the bill earlier this week, by a party-line 3-2 vote. The bill will now go to the full Senate, where Democrats hold 20 seats and Republicans hold 15, for a floor vote.
