Analysis by the Legislative Analyst

Background

Under current California law, "marriage" is based on a civil contract between a man and a woman. Current law also provides that a legal marriage that took place outside of California is generally considered valid in California. No state in the nation currently recognizes a civil contract or any other relationship between two people of the same sex as a marriage.

Proposal

This measure provides that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.

Fiscal Effect

This measure would likely have no fiscal effect on the state or local governments.
