The Battle is On

UPDATE: Kalamazoo gay-rights ordinance suspended after petition signatures are certified

Opponents of Kalamazoo's gay-rights ordinance submit petitions to force vote

KALAMAZOO -- An opposition group to the city of Kalamazoo's gay-rights ordinance submitted petitions this afternoon with more than 2,000 signatures in an effort to get the recently passed law overturned.

If enough signatures are deemed valid, city commissioners will then have to decide whether to rescind the ordinance or place it on the November ballot for voters to decide.
