Aiello Unsure Of Next Move In Same-Sex Marriage License Debate

It will apparently be up to Sangamon County Clerk Joe Aiello alone to determine if the county will issue marriage licenses early to same-sex couples. 


State’s Attorney John Milhiser has sent Aiello a letter raising concerns that such marriage licenses issued before June could later be declared invalid, since the state’s new same-sex marriage law hasn’t taken effect yet.  But Milhiser says the final decision rests with Aiello as a matter of policy, not of law.  


Aiello says he hasn’t decided what to do… but is considering issuing the licenses with a disclaimer warning of the potential legal difficulties.
