Push for referendum on same-sex marriages
April 29, 2013, Heath Aston, Political reporter, The Age
Australians could vote in a referendum on gay marriage in September under a radical proposal being pushed by independent MP Tony Windsor and supported by the Greens and other crossbenchers.
Mr Windsor will call on Prime Minister Julia Gillard to take the issue of same-sex marriage “out of the hands of politicians” and let the public decide on election day – September 14.
Fairfax Media has learnt that the government is set to announce that a referendum on recognising local government in the constitution will be held with the election, at a cost of $80 million.
