On July 30, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) introduced a bill (S.3680), known as the Family and Medical Leave Inclusion Act, to amend the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA). The bill would permit leave to care for a same-sex spouse, domestic partner, parent-in-law, adult child, sibling, or grandparent who has a serious health condition.

In his statement to the Senate, Durbin said the bill would “extend the important protections of the Family and Medical Leave Act to same-sex couples in America. Under current law, it is impossible for many employees to be with their partners during times of medical need.”

Re: Senator Durbin introduces Bill to include same sex partners...

Good step.

Of course, recognizing same sex marriage, by repealing the federal DOMA, wouldn't require any other laws to be changed. There are over 1000 federal benefits granted to married couples, including FMLA to take care of spouses.
