A group in Arkansas has begun a push to repeal the state's 2004 voter-approved gay marriage ban.

According to CBS affiliate Today's THV, the group Arkansans for Equality has started the formal paperwork needed to get the issue on the 2014 ballot.

“We've got a lawyer so far,” organizer Trey Weir said. “We've met with him on last Wednesday to discuss where we go from here and we should have some language for the ballot to submit to the Attorney General pretty soon.”

Repealing the ban is only the first step to legalizing marriage equality in the state. And a second group, The Arkansas Initiative for Marriage Equality, hopes to put a question legalizing such unions on the 2016 ballot.

Jerry Cox, the executive director of the Arkansas Family Council, the group which worked to approved the ban, insisted the issue was settled.

“The people of Arkansas have already spoken on this issue,” he said. “Seventy-five percent have said we believe marriage ought to be the union of a man and a woman and that pretty much settles it I believe.”

Groups are also working to repeal bans in Arizona and Ohio.
