Proposition 102 Update - Website Launched: By Mark R. Kerr

PHOENIX (Observer Update) - As previously reported, a total of eleven measures, referendum, initiatives, and constitutional amendments will be on Arizona's November general election ballot.

Only one of the eleven was placed on the ballot, not by petition or state commission, but by the radical right-wing Republicans who control the Arizona Legislature. Proposition 102, if approved by Arizona voters, will amend the Arizona Constitution by adding the following article related to marriage: "Marriage - Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state."

State law, Arizona Revised Statute (ARS) 25-101 and ARS 25-112, enacted in 1996 already covers the subject. Plus, in 2003 and 2004, the law was upheld in Arizona Superior Court and the Arizona Supreme Court in the case Standhardt V. Superior Court.

Opponents of Proposition 102 have launched a website No on Prop. 102. Bookmark the site, sign up to volunteer and donate, donate, donate!
