Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi will put his government on the line Thursday by resorting to a confidence vote in the Senate to push through a watered-down draft law on same-sex unions which has angered gay groups.The Senate will vote around 7:00 p.m. on a "super-amendment" to the bill, which falls short of gay rights groups' demands by excluding key provisions.After the vote on the "super-amendment," the bill could be adopted by the Senate as early as Friday, before being passed by the Chamber of Deputies, where Renzi has a more comfortable majority, in theory getting definitive approval within weeks.
