Proposition 8 will appear on the November 2008 ballot in California. It is variously known as the Protect Marriage Act, the Same-Sex Marriage Ban or the Limit on Marriage Amendment. If it passes, it will add a new constitutional amendment to the California Constitution that will have the following text: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” The ballot title for the measure says that Prop. 8 “eliminates the right of same-sex couples to marry”.
The electoral contest over Prop. 8 has attracted both national attention and dollars. By mid-August, supporters of Prop. 8 had raised about $8.4 million, while its opponents had raised $8.5 million. Money is not expected to be short on either side as the campaigns gear up for the fall battle, with consultants saying they expect about $30 million to be spent altogether. The initiative has attracted national dollars from both sides, with opponents raising 44% of their money from out-of-state donors, with supporters raising 34% of theirs from out-of-state.
According to its supporters, the Protect Marriage Amendment strengthens the process started when Proposition 22 passed with 61% of the vote in 2000, because, they believe, it is less susceptible to a legal challenge. This goal took on added weight when the California Supreme Court invalidated Prop 22 on May 15, 2008.
