Jindal: Louisiana will comply with Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage, but has no timetable



Gov. Bobby Jindal said today on NBC's Meet the Press that Louisiana would soon be acting in accord with Friday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage in America, but he didn't have a timetable.

Louisiana is now the only state in the union that hasn't issued a marriage license to two men or two women.

"Of course we're going to comply with the court order. We don't have a choice," Jindal told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd:

Jindal said he was waiting for the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse that ruling based on the Supreme Court's decision Friday.

As of Sunday afternoon, Louisiana was the only state in the nation that had not issued any marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

"As soon as [the courts] issue their ruling, I suspect it will be a matter of days. I don't know how quickly they will move," Jindal said when asked how soon he will comply with the law.
