Ballot initiatives/Referendums


:graybox: Constitutional Amendment #1
   Shall Article XI of the Constitution of the State of Tennessee be amended by adding
   the following language as a new, appropriately designated section:

       SECTION___. The historical institution and legal contract solemnizing the relationship
       of one man and one woman shall be the only legally recognized marital contract in this
       state. Any policy or law or judicial interpretation, purporting to define marriage
       as anything other than the historical institution and legal contract between one man
       and one woman, is contrary to the public policy of this state and shall be void and
       unenforceable in Tennessee. If another state or foreign jurisdiction issues a license
       for persons to marry and if such marriage is prohibited in this state by the provisions
       of this section, then the marriage shall be void and unenforceable in this state.

            residential property as the taxpayers principal place of residence shall pay taxes
            on such property in an amount not to exceed the maximum amount of tax on such
            property imposed at the time the ordinance or resolution is adopted;
            (2) Any taxpayer who reaches the age of sixty-five (65) after the time the
            ordinance or resolution is adopted, who owns residential property as the
            taxpayers principal place of residence, shall thereafter pay taxes on such
            property in an amount not to exceed the maximum amount of tax on such

            sixty-five (65); and
            (3) Any taxpayer who is sixty-five (65) years of age or older, who purchases
