2014 Ballot Measures Address Marriage Equality

Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 03/03/2014
In the fall of 2014 Oregonians will vote on two initiatives about the issue of marriage equality:
Ballot Measure 8 would overturn a previous measure and allow people to marry as they choose.
Ballot Measure 52 would allow businesses and individuals to discriminate against same sex couples.
In 2004, Oregonians passed Ballot Measure 36, which defined marriage as between one man and one woman.
KBOO’s Joe Meyer spoke with both backers for both 2014 initiatives and filed this report. 3:44 minutes (1.71 MB)
