No Early Licenses For Same-Sex Couples In Sangamon County


Sangamon County has no plans to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples early… despite a ruling from a federal judge in Chicago that says it’s unconstitutional to make gay couples wait until a new state law takes effect in June. 

 

The judge’s ruling only applies to Cook County… and Sangamon County Clerk Joe Aiello says unless there is further action, he will abide by the state law that legalizes same-sex marriage effective June 1st.

 

Cook County began issuing licenses within hours of that court ruling Friday, and the first weddings under the new ruling have already taken place.
