Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer is calling on Gov. Snyder and other Republicans to take steps so Michigan recognizes gay marriages from other states.
The law prevents same-sex couples from getting federal benefits.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in a gay marriage case from Calif. doesn’t have an immediate impact on Michigan’s voter-approved ban.
Decisions facing the court are whether or not to uphold, in whole or in part, California’s Proposition 8 and Section 3 of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act.
