2015 House Bill 4858: Ban forcing clerics to perform same sex marriages
Introduced by Rep. Cindy Gamrat R-Plainwell on September 9, 2015
To prohibit requiring a religious official to perform or “recognize” a marriage in violation of his or her conscience or religious beliefs. Probably by coincidence, the bill was introduced shortly after a county clerk in Kentucky was jailed for refusing to issue marriage license for homosexuals following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling whose effect was to mandate that state and local governments do this.   Official Text and Analysis.
