Supreme Court Ruling on Same-Sex Marriage Could Spur Action in the Kansas Legislature

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage could spur action in the Kansas Legislature. Speaking after the ruling, Republican Senate President Susan Wagle said they’ll be studying what the ruling means for Kansas law.

Wagle says the ruling could prompt lawmakers to look at a possible legislative response.

“We want to assure the people of Kansas that those who are personally opposed to same-sex marriage, we want to assure the fact that they don’t have to participate in one or perform one,” says Wagle.

Kansas attracted national attention in 2014 over a bill that supporters said would prevent people from being forced to take part in same-sex marriages. Opponents argued it would be legal protection for discrimination. The bill eventually stalled in the Legislature.
