From GoLocalProv by GoLocalProv News Team:
Governor Lincoln D. Chafee today signed Executive Order 12-02, directing all state departments, agencies, and offices to recognize the lawful marriages of same-sex couples as valid for any purpose arising in the execution of their duties and to review their operations and take all actions necessary to extend respect to these marriages to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Governor’s action represents a continuation of current state law and is consistent with the opinion issued by the Attorney General in 2007 stating that recognizing the valid marriages of same-sex couples does not violate Rhode Island public policy.
