Local Thomson Reuters executives oppose marriage amendment

Thomson Reuters executives in Minnesota say they are publicly opposed to the proposed marriage amendment, the Star Tribune reports.

Thomson Reuters sent an email clarifying the stance, WCCO reports.

Thomson Reuters joins two other high-profile companies in Minnesota to publicly oppose the amendment: General Mills and St. Jude Medical. The stance brought amendment supporters to the door of General Mills in protest.

One CEO has been attempting to convince others to oppose it, the Pioneer Press recently reported.

Voters will have their say on the amendment, which would change the state constitution to define marriage as between a man and woman, in November.
