Texas Bill to Allow Recusals for Issuing Gay and Lesbian Marriage Licenses

Texas Bill to Allow Recusals for Issuing Gay and Lesbian Marriage Licenses

Legislators in the Texas are hoping that their latest bill in Texas will slowly chip away at the federal law for gay and lesbian couples to marry. They recently voted to allow county judges and other elected officials to recuse themselves from issuing licenses if they have a religious objection. The Conservative-dominated senate voted 21-10 with full Republican support. A final vote is to come Wednesday.

Things can get messy quickly if this vote passes, remember the legal fight with Kim Davis in Kentucky?
