OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Judges or court clerks who issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples would lose their jobs under a bill that’s been approved by a House panel.

The House Judiciary and Civil Procedure Committee voted yesterday to approve the "Preservation of Sovereignty and Marriage Act."

The author of the bill, Republican Representative Sally Kern, says she believes the U.S. Supreme Court overstepped its authority by forcing Oklahoma to recognize gay marriages.
