President Barack Obama plans to extend health care and other benefits to the gay and lesbian partners of federal employees.

White House officials say Obama plans to announce his decision today in the Oval Office. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the president had not yet made the announcement.

The move would give partners of federal employees access to health care and financial benefits such as relocation fees for moves.
