I can't remember another time that receiving a bill in the mail made me smile. But today I got a notice of some changes to my auto insurance. Here's what it said:
Please be aware that effective with your next renewal, the following changes have been made to your policy: Paragraph A.2. The term spouse has been expanded to include the "named insured's" domestic partner, as defined by Oregon law, throughout the policy and attached endorsement.These changes are provided due to the passage of Oregon House Bill 2007 which recognizes domestic partnerships in the state of Oregon for those couples who choose to register with the state for recognition or form a legal domestic partnership contract.These changes grant registered domestic partners and civil union partners the same rights as those granted to married couples within the State of Oregon.
