In Oregon, the commissioners of Benton County decide not to start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. This reversal of an earlier vote is due to receiving a letter from state attorney general Hardy Myers on the matter.

In place of same-sex marriage licenses, the commissioners decide to stop issuing any marriage licenses to anyone at all until the Oregon Supreme Court rules on the constitutionality of the discriminatory provisions of Oregon's marriage laws.
