Arizona Marriage Amendment Update - SCR 1042 - Action Alert

The Arizona House of Representatives, acting as the Committee of the Whole, moved the anti-marriage amendment (SCR 1042) forward this afternoon (April 22). However, House leadership did not bring the bill up for a final House vote today. SCR (Senate Concurrent Resolution) 1042 will likely be scheduled for a vote as soon as tomorrow.

As mentioned before, Cathi Herrod has deployed the entire arsenal of the Center for Arizona Policy to pressure lawmakers to vote in favor of SCR 1042, which would put another divisive anti-marriage amendment on the ballot.
