Week Goes By Without New Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment Proposal in Arizona, Legislator Acts to Correct Situation

Oh, for fuck's sake . Give it a rest already, will ya?
Advocates of a measure to enshrine the one-man/one-woman definition of marriage in the state Constitution have another chance.

Rep. Eddie Farnsworth, R-Gilbert, has authored a strike-everything amendment that resurrects the marriage proposal, which he and other supporters hope will make the November ballot. Check out SCR 1042 here.

Kyrsten Sinema, D-Phoenix, derailed the last amendment attempt by adding what the Center for Arizona Policy called "hostile language" and what rational people might call "safeguards for basic rights such as designating medical power of attorney" to the language of the bill. Here's hoping she still has our back in the statehouse.
