Texas Republicans Could Take New Stand on Same-Sex Marriage

Thursday, May 14, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Racing both a U.S. Supreme Court decision on gay marriage and legislative deadlines, Texas Republicans pushed ahead Tuesday toward putting the state at the forefront of resistance if same-sex weddings are ruled constitutional, the Associated Press reported.

Nearly every Republican in the Texas House is backing a measure that would prohibit state and local officials from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Less than three weeks remain in Republican Gov. Greg Abbott's first session, and the bill must clear the House by midnight Thursday to advance.

If signed by Abbott, the bill would aim to defy the Supreme Court if it legalizes gay marriage, laying the groundwork for Texas to potentially raise new legal battles over its ability to regulate marriage licenses. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/texas-republicans-stand-sex-marriage-30972386" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
