SCR 1042 Update - Of Sorts By Mark R. Kerr

With the Republican-controlled Arizona Legislature still posturing in regard to the budget for the state government for the upcoming new fiscal year, SCR (Senate Concurrent Resolution) 1042, the proposed state constitutional amendment defining "marriage" and barring governmental and legal recognition of "same sex relationships" is still alive.

SCR 1042 still faces a concur/refuse vote in the Arizona Senate, since the original intent was to honor Arizonans who served in the armed services during the Vietnam War with an unpaid holiday, so Republicans screwed Vietnam Veterans for queer bashing during this election year.

To see if the bill has been scheduled, check the Senate calendar at least once a day since it can be revised, again and again and again.

If the measure is scheduled, let your Senator know of your opposition to SCR 1042 and that they should vote no.
