NEWS/TALK KIT POLL: GAY MARRIAGE BILL SIGNED INTO LAW, NOW WHAT?
Washington State became the seventh in the nation to allow gay marriage today when the legislation was signed into law. Now what?
At about 11:30 this morning, Governor Chris Gregoire signed the legislation making gay marriage legal in Washington State. The Governor said “I’m proud our same-sex couples will no longer be treated as separate but equal.”
Same-sex couples can’t walk down the aisle just yet.
The law takes effect June 7, but opponents on multiple fronts already are preparing to fight.
Opponents planned to file a challenge Monday that could put the law on hold pending the outcome of a November vote. Separately, an initiative was filed at the beginning of the session that opponents of gay marriage say could lead to the new law being overturned.
Take our poll and tell us where you would come down if there were a November ballot issue to possibly overturn the new law.
