Columbia Sportswear plans to endorse same-sex marriage initiative

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

One of Oregon's largest companies has decided to endorse the same-sex marriage initiative in Oregon.

Columbia Sportswear said it is now publicly supporting the proposed initiative that aims to legalize same-sex marriage.

Several privately-held companies have already announced their support of the measure, but Columbia Sportswear is the biggest company to take the stand so far.

The company is a publicly-traded corporation.

CEO Tim Boyle said he did not consult his board before putting the company's support behind the measure.
