Collin County Clerk Stacey Kemp said her office “will confer with legal counsel and go from there.”Tarrant County Clerk Mary Louise Garcia said it is difficult to provide an exact time when her office will begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.”First, we will continue to seek legal consultation from our Criminal District Attorney Office once the opinion is rendered to ensure we are following the law. Other factors include the software and budget needs,” she told News 8 in an e-mail. “We will need to make changes to the official state application as well as upgrading the electronic software. Preliminary conversations on both fronts have already begun, but there is not a confirmed timeline as of today.”Marriage licenses in Tarrant County say “husband” and “wife,” and must be changed electronically, Garcia added.
