The anti-marriage amendment is back.
After it looked like the amendment had been derailed, it is back on the agenda for the Arizona House of Representatives. Things may move very quickly-the House could vote on the amendment at any time, possibly on today, April 22, and the Senate might immediately follow. If the legislature approves the amendment, it will be on this November's ballot, just two years after a similar effort was defeated.
Please let anyone in Arizona know about this - if it gets on the November ballot it will be a disaster not only for gays and lesbians, but for all Democrats running for office.
If you are in AZ you can email your two State Representatives here:
Or even better please call them now at 602-926-4221 or 1-800-352-8404 to urge them to vote no on SCR 1042, as amended. Urge them to keep this divisive amendment off the ballot.
If you don't know who you your 2 State Representatives are, you can call the capitol switchboard at 602-926-4221 or 1-800-352-8404 and tell them you live in House District 29 and you would like to speak with both of your representatives.
