Wanted: Local ties to same-sex marriage debate
August 21, 2012
Washington is poised to decide the fate of a landmark same-sex marriage law on the November ballot.
Referendum 74 asks voters to approve or reject a same-sex marriage measure passed by state legislators and signed by Gov. Chris Gregoire.
Washington state has had a domestic partnership law — or “everything but marriage” law — in place since 2009.
The Issaquah Press is seeking local ties to the R-74 debate, especially same-sex couples in the Issaquah School District.
