SB 2; 2R - Magistrate Recusal for Civil Ceremonies

Magistrates and Registrar’s of deeds may recuse themselves from performing all marriages, for a minimum of 6 months, for any sincerely held religious objection. Civitas believes the conservative position is that the religious liberties of the magistrates should be respected, and other means can be used to still perform now-legal gay marriage. The conservative vote is yes.
