LUFKIN, TX - The Nacogdoches County Clerk June Clifton and Angelina County Clerk Amy Fincher said they and their staff will be begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples on Monday morning. 

On Friday, the Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote on Friday that the Constitution guarantees a right for same-sex couple to marry in the United States.

Following that decision Friday, a few Texas counties clerks -- including ones in Angelina and Nacogdoches -- said they couldn't issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples because say they were waiting for an updated forms from the state's Bureau of Vital Statistics. 

After 5 p.m., the revised marriage license applications to allow same-sex couples to get married became available on the Department of State Health Service's website. http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/vs/field/Local-Registrar-and-County-Clerk-Forms/
