What’s next in Michigan following Friday’s Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage

June 30, 2015

According to Attorney General Bill Schuette who voted to defend Michigan’s 2004 “one-man, one-woman” marriage amendment . . . Friday’s ruling is the “last word.”  Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder agrees.  

However, some lawmakers don’t quite see it that way.  

Sen. Patrick Colbeck (R-Canton) argues there should be look at the constitutional power of U.S. Supreme Court overall.  Conservative Rep. Cindy Gamrat (R-Plainwell) posted Friday she’s requested a bill that would allow priests and religious officials the ability to conscientiously object to performing same-sex marriages.  

The Michigan Law Revision Commission is planning on beginning a look at what Michigan laws would need to be updated following Friday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
