From what the article says, it may be difficult for opponents to place the question of same-sex marriage recognition on a ballot because DC election law prohibits voting on a matter that would violate DC's Human Rights Act, which in turn says that the govenrment cannot "limit or refuse to provide any facility, service, program, or benefit" to people based on sexual orientation.

The vote was 13-0, without debate.

Those damn judic–er, legislative activists? :P
