01 Proposing an amendment to the section of the Constitution of the State of Alaska                                        
02 relating to marriage.                                                                                                   
03 BE IT RESOLVED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF ALASKA:                                                               
04    * Section 1. Article I, sec. 25, Constitution of the State of Alaska, is amended to read:

09       conferred on a union other than the union of a man and woman.
