SANTA FE (KRQE) - Gay marriage will be the focus at Wednesday night's city council meeting in Santa Fe.
City councilors are scheduled to take a vote on whether to encourage county clerks to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in New Mexico.
Last month Santa Fe's city attorney stated that in his legal opinion state law here does not necessarily rule out marriage between people of the same sex. The law is not gender-specific, he said.
That declaration sparked a renewed debate on same-sex marriage in New Mexico.
The council meeting starts at 5 p.m., and KRQE News 13 will cover the session and report on the results in later newscasts.
