New developments in the California marriage equality issue have come forth in the last week. The National Center for Lesbian Rights is now arguing that the anti-marriage equality initiative gathered signatures under a false assertion as it claims "no fiscal affect on state or local governments". This assertion is disputed by a recent report from the Williams Institute at UCLA which has calculated that gay marriage will bring $700 million to the state economy over the next three years, and add $63 million in tax revenue.
