Kansas Attorney General Paul Morrison has just issued an opinion, paving the way for the city of Lawrence to create a domestic partner registry.
If the City Commission passes the registry, it would make Lawrence the first city in Kansas to offer such a registry. I'm in the process of reading the opinion now, but the Lawrence Journal-World says it limits the registry to residents of Lawrence. As previously written, the proposed ordinance would have allowed couples from anywhere in Kansas to register.
