Both Sides On Gay Marriage Anticipating Ballot Measure in 2014

By Jim McCoy Mon 11th February NewsBasic Rights Oregongay rightsMarriageOregon Family Council
Supporters of same-sex marriage say they're aiming at a vote next year to reverse Oregon's ban on gay marriage, which was approved in 2004. The state's leading gay-rights group, Basic Rights Oregon, said Monday it would form a campaign organization to get a constitutional amendment on the November 2014 ballot. Voters in Oregon approved the ban on gay marriage by a vote of nearly 57 percent to 43 percent. But Basic Rights Oregon said in a statement that approval of gay marriage in other states and shifting public opinion has put momentum on its side. A spokeswoman for the Oregon Family Council told The Oregonian the group has been preparing to oppose such a measure and said both sides would have a difficult fight. Associated Press
