Local NWCN: R-74 Supporters "Revving Up" Petitions to Preserve Marriage


Local King 5 News:

More than 120,000 signatures are needed by June 6 to get Referendum 74 on the ballot. If that happens, the law is put on hold until after the election. On the ballot in November, voters would decide either yes or no on gay marriage.

Opponents say they think they will be able to get the needed signatures.

Backholm said they don't plan on hiring signature gatherers because they already have 4,000 people who have asked to circulate the petitions.
