Arkansas AG Rejects Wording Of Gay Marriage Repeal
Arkansas' attorney general has rejected the wording of a proposal to repeal the state constitution's ban on gay marriage.
Attorney General Dustin McDaniel on Friday rejected the language of a proposed constitutional amendment a group called Arkansans for Equality wants to place on the 2014 ballot.
The group must submit more than 78,000 signatures from registered voters to put the proposed amendment on the ballot.
The proposal would repeal the amendment voters approved in 2004 defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
The group filed the measure the day after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a pair of rulings supporting same-sex couples.
