Oregon's attorney general issues an opinion on same-sex marriage, stating that issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples would contradict current state law. At the same time, he also concludes that the Oregon Supreme Court would probably strike down those statutes as violating the state's constitution.

Partially as a result of this, the Wisconsin State Senate will vote to approve an amendment to the state constitution banning same-sex marriages or even civil unions.
