COLORADO ATTORNEY TELLS COUNTY CLERKS TO BEGIN ISSUING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LICENSES
DENVER—This morning, the Colorado Supreme Court removed the legal obstacles preventing Colorado’s county clerks from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
The following statement is to be attributed to Colorado Attorney General John Suthers.
“There are no remaining legal requirements that prevent same-sex couples from legally marrying in Colorado. Beginning today, Colorado’s 64 county clerks are legally required to issue licenses to same-sex couples who request them. In addition, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is required to register such marriages in the records of the State of Colorado.”
