Same-sex partners to get federal benefits

Yesterday, President Barack Obama announced plans to extend health care and other benefits to the gay and lesbian partners of federal employees. White House officials say Obama plans to announce his decision today in the Oval Office.

The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the president hadn't yet signed the presidential memorandum.

The decision would give partners of federal employees access to health care and financial benefits, including relocation fees.
