Leaders of the Massachusetts Senate are preparing to push legislation to establish civil unions for gays and lesbians, a form of legal recognition for same-sex relationships that only Vermont has enacted into law.
Increasingly, some members of the Senate believe the court may direct the Legislature to address the question of the legal status of same-sex relationships, and they want to be prepared.
Senator Robert A. Havern III, an Arlington Democrat and the assistant majority whip, said he believes there is enough support among senators to pass civil union legislation, but stressed he has not conducted a formal poll of members.
