Legislative Development: Wisconsin Assembly Passes Proposed Same-Sex Marriage Ban

The Wisconsin State Assembly voted 62-31 to place a constitutional amendment on the November 2006 ballot that would amend the state constitution to prohibit same-sex marriages. The amendment reads: "Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized in this state."  Source:  UPI, The Washington Times, washtimes.com.
