"Proposition 8's revision to the California Constitution violates key structural checks and balances built into our legal system," said Sen. Leno. "Overnight, the constitutional protections of thousands of tax paying, law abiding California citizens were stripped from them by a simple majority vote, without a prior two-thirds vote by both houses of the legislature, thereby trampling on their fundamental right to equal protection."

"Any major revision to the state Constitution should not be allowed to circumvent the legal system," said Assemblymember Ammiano. "The fact is, Proposition 8 was improperly instituted through the ballot process without legislative involvement. I am proud to author this crucial resolution urging the courts to right the social travesty of Proposition 8 and ensure any similar future measures are approached in an appropriate and legal manner."

PLEASE take the time to write to Mark Leno and Tom Ammiano to show your support for this. And if you live in California, contact your state reps and urge them to support these measures. If enough people speak up, then hopefully they will listen.
