Group wants definition of marriage in ND constitution
Associated Press

BISMARCK, N.D. - A group plans to wage a campaign for a North Dakota constitutional amendment to define marriage as the union of a man and woman.

Supporters of the proposal turned in a proposed constitutional amendment to Secretary of State Al Jaeger on Wednesday. He has until June 7 to review the proposal and approve it for circulation.

Massachusetts began licensing same-sex marriages earlier this month, and opponents of homosexual marriage have expressed fears that states which have not previously sanctioned the marriages will be legally forced to accept them.

Christina Kindel, director of the North Dakota Family Alliance, is chairwoman of the initiative campaign. The alliance supports tax cuts for families and opposes abortion and gambling, according to policy statements posted on its Web site.
