Massachusetts Gay Marriage Foes May Get Constitutional Amendment on Ballot

Backers of a proposed constitutional amendment to put a stop to gay marriage in Massachusetts said Tuesday they have gathered almost twice the number of signatures needed to put it on the ballot in 2008. Beyond the signatures, the proposal needs to be approved by two successive sessions of the state Legislature before it can be placed before voters. The Massachusetts Family Institute and its online counterpart, http://www.voteonmarriage.org, said they will submit over 120,000 signatures before Wednesday's 5 p.m. deadline. The measure needed the support of 65,825 registered voters. Source. Glen Johnson, Seattlepi.com.  For more information, please click here (last visited November 23, 2005, reo).
