OLYMPIA, Washington. The same day that State of Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire signed Senate Bill 5688 (2009), which grants same-sex domestic partners in Washington all the rights of married couples, the Washington Attorney General released the ballot title and summary for Washington Referendum 71 (2009).

Referendum 71, sponsored by the Washington Values Alliance, is proposed as a veto referendum that would nullify the law signed by Gregoire.

Sponsors have until July 25 to collect 120,577 valid voter signatures to get the measure on the Nov. 3 ballot.[1]
