KY Governor Removes Clerks' Names from Marriage Licenses

12-23-2015
 
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has ordered the state to prepare new marriage licenses in an attempt to protect the religious beliefs of local elected officials.
Bevin issued the executive order to shield county clerks such as Kim Davis. The Rowan County clerk spent five days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Bevin said he wanted to "ensure that the sincerely held religious beliefs of all Kentuckians are honored."
"Today, I took action to uphold several commitments I made during my campaign so that we can implement real solutions that will help the people of Kentucky," Bevin said in a news release.

Bevin said the Kentucky Department of Libraries and Archives must issue revised marriage license forms to all county clerks.
