STATEHOUSE WEDDINGS-GAYS
Policy prevents Statehouse weddings by same-sex couples, others without Ohio wedding license

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 10, 2014 10:32 PM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


A committee will review a policy that now prevents same-sex couples and others without valid Ohio wedding licenses from renting the Ohio Statehouse and its grounds for weddings and receptions.

A spokesman for the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board that oversees the building and grounds said Thursday that a board committee plans to review the policy.

FreedomOhio, a group supporting same-sex marriage, says the policy discriminates against gay couples who are banned from getting licenses to wed in Ohio.

State Rep. Michael Stinziano says he wanted the policy reviewed. The Columbus Democrat says he doesn't think it was specifically intended to discriminate against same-sex couples. But he also says Ohio's state parks do not have the license requirement and the Statehouse could benefit financially from changing the policy.
