Tempe council to hear legal advice on civil unions

PHOENIX (AP) -

Another Arizona city may consider whether to approve civil unions that could include same-sex couples.

The Tempe City Council plans late Thursday to meet behind closed doors to get legal advice on civil unions.

Tempe has an estimated population of about 165,000 and is one of the larger cities in the Phoenix area.

The Tempe's scheduled discussion comes after the Bisbee City Council approved an ordinance for civil unions Tuesday night.

Bisbee is a city of about 5,600 people in mostly rural Cochise County in southeastern Arizona.
