Governor Bobby Jindal Says Louisiana Will Comply With New Marriage Law
On NBC's "Meet the Press", Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal says Louisiana will comply with new gay marriage law.
Jindal, who is running for President says
We don’t have a choice. Our agencies will comply with the court order.
The Republican presidential contender said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” after being asked why his state is the only one that has not yet issued marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Appearing from the state capital in Baton Rouge, the governor explained his state is waiting on a 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision to reverse a previous ruling upholding traditional marriage and implement the high court’s ruling.
On Friday, the state’s attorney general’s office issued a statement saying it found nothing in the Supreme Court’s decision that made it a legal requirement for officials to comply immediately.
