Effective immediately the Portage County Clerk’s office will be issuing same sex marriage licenses following the mandate issued by the 7th Circuit Federal United States Court this morning.
That order lifts the stay and the Wisconsin Attorney General indicated that once the stay was lifted county clerks should immediately begin issuing same sex licenses.
The decision was reviewed and endorsed by Corporation Counsel Mike McKenna.
