( – “While other cities are slashing employee benefits, Berkeley is slated to add one more: paying for sex-change operations,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Tuesday.

The Berkeley City Council was expected to vote Tuesday night on a proposal to reserve $20,000 annually for city employees’ gender-reassignment surgery, which is not covered by the city’s health insurance providers, the newspaper reported.

The benefit, to be distributed on a first-come, first-serve  basis, would allow employees to collect the money before the operation.
