Washington Referendum 71

Dgarling, thank you for your edits on Washington 2009 ballot measures. I revised your post to make the statement shorter for the sake of available chart space. Our longer article on the issue is located here. Thanks, again. BaileyL 17:58, 31 August 2009 (CDT)

The changes made were unfortunately, incorrect and incomplete. The law expands rights, responsibilities, etc. for all registered domestic partners in Washington State, not just same-sex couples. Heterosexual senior citizens are also impacted. In addition, it's important to note that only rights/responsibilities/obligations granted by the state would be extended to registered domestic partners. I've revised the entry, trying to be mindful of space (my version is one word longer), while still quoting the actual referendum and returning the reference to the actual referendum language.
