.- The Alliance for Marriage has urged citizens of Washington state to send an urgent request to their state legislators asking them to organize, support and defend the common sense definition of marriage in the state.
Governor Chris Gregoire recently signed a bill recognizing same-sex couples as domestic partners. While this bill avoids using the word "marriage", the bill extends marital rights to homosexuals, the group noted.
The Alliance for Marriage is working with pro-marriage state legislators to establish the Washington State Marriage Protection Caucus.
In South Carolina, the Marriage Protection Caucus already introduced and passed the Marriage Protection Resolution, proposed by the Alliance for Marriage, in the South Carolina house.
