Alaska--Calls Needed to Support Marriage Protection Amendment

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

Good News! On Wednesday of this week the Senate Judiciary Committee
passed Senate Joint Resolution 20 prohibiting some-sex unions similar
to marriage. It passed by the closest margin--a vote of three
senators in favor and two opposed.

The bill has been referred to the Senate Finance Committee where a
hearing is scheduled for next Thursday, March 9, at 9 a.m. Your calls
to members of the committee are needed to get this bill before the
full Senate for a vote.

Please join in this fight to preserve the traditional definition of
marriage and family in Alaska. Contact members of the Senate Finance
Committee today!

ACTION REQUESTED:

(1) Please call and email as many members of the Senate Finance
Committee as possible with this message:

"Please support Senate Joint Resolution 20 which would prohibit
same-sex unions and preserve traditional marriage between one man and
one woman."

The contact information for members of the Senate Finance Committee is
as follows:

Sen. Lyda Green (R), Co-Chair
(907) 465-6600

(2) Please forward this email to other homeschooling families who are
not members of HSLDA and ask them to contact these legislators as
well.

BACKGROUND:

The Alaska Constitution currently defines marriage as between a man
and a woman. This resolution would amend the Constitution to state
that a marriage between a man and a woman is the only union recognized
by the state, thereby prohibiting such things as civil unions or
domestic partnerships between homosexuals.

If you have any questions or concerns about what this bill would do,
please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information.

Sincerely,

Dewitt T. Black, III
HSLDA Senior Counsel
