GAY MARRIAGE-BALLOT
Organizer: Revised gay marriage amendment won't make Ohio's fall ballot; not enough signatures

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, June 19, 2014 4:34 PM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


A key organizer in the ballot effort to overturn Ohio's gay marriage ban says a revised proposal lacks the required signatures to go before voters this fall.

FreedomOhio's executive director Ian James also said Thursday the campaign would not have had enough money to run an effective statewide campaign this year.

The group hinted in April when it updated the wording for its constitutional amendment that it might hold off this November. With a July 2 signature deadline approaching, James confirmed the issue won't meet the requirements to appear on 2014 ballots.

The proposal would repeal and replace Ohio's 2004 prohibition on same-sex marriage. It would allow two consenting adults to marry regardless of gender, and religious places of worship would not be required to perform or recognize gay marriages.
