Sangamon County Has No Plans To Move Early On Same-Sex Marriage

Despite a federal court ruling permitting an immediate start to same-sex marriage in Cook County, Sangamon County officials say they don't plan to issue marriage licenses to gay couples until the new state law takes effect on June 1st.


That ruling from a federal judge in Chicago appears to apply only to Cook County, and as a result, Sangamon County Clerk Joe Aiello says he will continue to proceed under the provisions of the state law that was approved last year.  Aiello says he will talk to staff about the implications of the court ruling, but for now he says it appears his office is bound by the June 1st effective date.
