An Arizona Marriage Amendment Repeal, introduced as Arizona Senate Concurrent Resolution 1004 in 2013, did not make the November 4, 2014 general election ballot in the state of Arizona as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have repealed a state constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. This constitutional amendment was approved in 2008 as Proposition 102 by 56.2 percent of the voters. The resolution seeking a measure to repeal the 2008 constitutional amendment was introduced by State Senator Steve Gallardo (D-29), who was one of four sponsors of the bill.[1][2]

The formal title of the resolution calling for this measure was SCR 1004.
