Oregon Marriage Equality Opponents' Attempt to Rewrite Marriage Equality Initiative Title Rejected
As they have in several other states, marriage equality opponents are trying to re-write the ballot title for a marriage equality initiative. Oregon Live reports:

The attorney general's office on Friday announced its final wording on a ballot title -- and it rejected the legal argument from an attorney for the Oregon Family Council that the title should reflect the notion that the initiative would require every governmental agency in Oregon to issue marriage licenses... Jeff Payne, an assistant attorney general, said in a letter to the state Elections Division that the argument made by opponents is questionable. And even if it turns out to be correct, "requiring officials other than county clerks to issue marriage licenses is a secondary effect of the measure, not its subject" and should thereby not be in the ballot title, he wrote.


If signature gathering is successful, the measure would go to the ballot in November of 2014. Basic Rights Oregon, the initiative's sponsor, has until July to collect 116K signatures.
