The Oregon attorney general's office isn't buying an attempt by marriage equality opponents to radically rewrite the ballot title for a proposed initiative that would allow marriages for same-sex couples in Oregon.

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.
