A Thurston County Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday that a proposed referendum seeking to overturn a new marriage equality law in Washington will not contain the phrase “redefine marriage.”

Judge Thomas McPhee was charged with finalizing language for the ballot title and summary of Referendum 74 after both sides of the debate challenged the original wording by Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna. McPhee’s language is final and cannot be appealed.
