WASHINGTON-- The 'Everything but Marriage Law' would give equal rights to all domestic partners. The bill has passed both the house and the senate and many expect the governor to sign it into law soon. But there's new opposition to the bill.
On Monday, a referendum was filed to stop the bill from becoming a law before an election. Opponents need to collect over 120,000 valid voter signatures by July 25. That's because the law was set to start July 26th.
If they succeed in getting the signatures, it would push the topic of domestic partnership to November's ballot.
