Will Californians vote to end state's 'marriage business?'

Two students are now working to gain enough signatures on petitions to propose a ballot initiative that would end the state's issuance of marriage licenses, instead substituting civil-union licenses that would be issued to both straight and gay couples. The proposal was the result of a question posed by a state Supreme Court justice during a hearing on Proposition 8 earlier this month.
