      Hawaii lawmakers OK civil unions, send bill to gov

      Hawaii is a step closer to joining a small group of other states in allowing
      same-sex civil unions.



      In a move that still needs the governor's signature to become law, the House
      of Representatives Thursday night approved a measure that has drawn some of
      the state's biggest protest rallies.



      Republican Gov. Linda Lingle hasn't said whether she'll reject it or sign it
      into law but her office said later that she will carefully review the bill.



      The House voted 31-20 in favor of the legislation, which had been stalled
      but was unexpectedly revived on the last day of this year's legislative
      session. The Senate passed it in January.
