SANTA FE (KRQE) - Even though Dona Ana County issued same-sex marriage licenses Wednesday, other county clerks are not jumping on board, including Santa Fe’s County Clerk.
Santa Fe has been a focal point in this fight after City Attorney Geno Zamora announced his legal opinion in March – that the law allows same-sex marriage.
He and Santa Fe Mayor David Coss then encouraged county clerks across the state to start issuing same-sex marriage licenses.
On Wednesday, the Santa Fe County Clerk says things won't change for now, pointing out that Santa Fe County is involved in several pending lawsuits over same-sex marriage licenses.
“At this point, it's in the court and as I've stated previously that I believe this issue needs to be addressed through legislature or courts, Santa Fe County Clerk does not create laws or interpret laws,” said Clerk Geraldine Salazar.
Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver said through a spokesperson that the county needs to review Attorney General Gary King’s comments, but for now, they will not issue same-sex licenses.
