Salt Lake City With the ruling on same-sex marriage expected any day now from the United States Supreme Court, Gov. Gary Herbert says lawmakers, rather than courts should make policy on gay marriage.
“I believe the process is better for us to get to the right end result when people speak through their legislative leaders. I would rather have the respective state legislatures say this is the definition of marriage in our state as opposed to having a court make the decision,” he said.
Herbert says judges’ rulings often leave people unsatisfied, though the governor said he has not given much thought to a potential decision. He said Utah will abide by the ruling, whatever it is.
