Same-sex marriage licenses are to be issued in San Luis Obispo County “effective immediately,” County Clerk-Recorder Julie Rodewald told The Tribune on Friday.
Since county offices close at 5 p.m. Friday, the soonest the public can receive such licenses will be 8 a.m. Monday when offices open again.
There will be a volunteer to perform a marriage ceremony for any couple who would like to get married Monday at the County Government Center in downtown San Luis Obispo, Rodewald said.
On Friday, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals lifted a stay it imposed on gay marriages while a lawsuit challenging Proposition 8 worked its way through the courts.
