AG Myers Thanks Benton County Commissioners For Decision To Not Issue Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

March 22, 2004

I am very pleased with today's decision by the Benton County Board of Commissioners. The decision ensures that marriage licenses will not be issued in violation of Oregon statutes in Benton County. I thank the commissioners for delaying action now that we have agreed on expedited proceedings in Multnomah County. It is my sincere hope that legal process will provide clarity for each of Oregon's counties.
