Same Sex Marriage... Another Step Closer on the National Level
(CNN) -- Attorney General Eric Holder says he is set to extend the federal government's recognition of same-sex marriages even in the 34 states that don't consider it legal.
CNN has obtained excerpts of a speech Holder will deliver at the Human Rights Campaign's New York City gala event Saturday night.
Holder plans to announce that the Justice Department will issue a memo Monday that recognizes same-sex marriages "to the greatest extent possible under the law."
