Referendum Battle Heats Up Statewide

Local supporters of the Marriage Equality Bill are hitting the road to celebrate the legislation signed into law by Governor Chris Gregoire earlier this month.

Occupy Spokane is spearheading a gathering planned with the LGBT Center at the rest area on along eastbound I-90 near Sprague starting Thursday morning at 4 a.m.

The groups will be there until Midnight encouraging travelers to not sign R-74, the referendum filed by the bill’s opposition to reverse the Governor’s decision.

Across the state, an effort to block the ballot title of Referendum 74 is heading to court. Preserve Marriage Washington has filed a court challenge to the Attorney General Office to change the title of the referendum saying it does the reflect the gender neutrality change for “husband” and “wife”.

They’re not the only ones challenging the title. Supporters of the new law are expected to challenge as well. They all have until next Monday to file their case. Challenges are typically held at the same meeting, but a hearing date hasn’t even been announced yet.
