"California to start issuing same-sex marriage licenses on June 14."

AP reports:

Same-sex couples in some California counties will be able to marry as soon as June 14, the president of the California’s county clerks association said.

Stephen Weir, who heads the California Association of Clerks and Election Officials, said Monday he was told by the Office of Vital Records that clerks would be authorized to hand out marriage licenses as soon as that date, which is a Saturday and exactly 30 days after the California Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage should be legal.

The court’s decisions typically take effect after 30 days, barring further legal action.
