The citizen initiative that would spell out that marriage is only between a man and a woman wont qualify for the November ballot. Its sponsor, Stephen Pidgeon of Everett, says Initiative 1192 is more than 140,000 signatures short ahead of Fridays deadline for turning in petitions to the Office of the Secretary of State in Olympia, and he concedes it wont happen.
I hate to say it but were just not going to cross the threshold. Were not going to make it. This measure is not going to be on the ballot, Pidgeon said of I-1192.
