Opponents Speak Out Against "Everything but Marriage" Law

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash.--  People are speaking out against a measure Governor Christine Gregoire signed into law Monday.

The "Everything But Marriage" law will give same-sex couples all the rights and benefits that are offered to married couples.   It will take effect at the end of July, unless opponents collect enough signatures to put a referendum on the November 3 ballot.  Opponents will have until July 25th to get more than 120,000 signatures.

The Attorney General's office says, as of Monday night, more than 5,000 couples are registered.
