SEDONA, Ariz. -- Another Arizona community is moving toward recognizing civil unions of couples regardless of gender.

The Sedona City Council voted Wednesday to formally consider an ordinance authorizing civil unions in the red-rock country community in north-central Arizona.

Sedona's city attorney said a draft proposal being prepared for the City Council's consideration borrows from local civil-union laws already approved by Bisbee, Jerome and Tucson.

Provisions would include a registration process and a city-maintained list of agreements that couples wish to register.

Mayor Rob Adams said approval of the civil union ordinance would send a message that love is love, "regardless if its two people of the same sex or not."

Phoenix television station KPHO reported that a Sept. 24 vote is expected on the measure.
