BISBEE, AZ (AP) -

Bisbee City Council members say they're not hearing much from constituents before a scheduled vote on legalize civil unions for same-sex couples.

If approved by the Bisbee council, the ordinance would give same-sex partners in civil unions the same rights in the city as married couples.

The council is scheduled to formally vote Tuesday evening on the proposed ordinance. It drew unanimous support from the council on March 19.

According to the Sierra Vista Herald, Councilwoman Shirley Doughty says some possible critics may be silent because the proposal doesn't directly involve marriage.

Councilman David Smith says most of the people who've spoken with him about the proposal support it.

Smith says one email did say council members will turn into pillars of salt if they approve the ordinance.
