County recorders told they must comply with marriages

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Iowa's 99 county recorders have received notices they must comply with the Supreme Court's ruling that legalizes same-sex marriage.

E-mails were sent to recorders by the Department of Public Health, after reports that some recorders have contemplated refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.  The e-mail says recorders who do not comply could be fired.
