According to Equality Florida, Florida’s Bureau of Vital Statistics is refusing to allow hospitals to list both same-sex parents on their baby’s birth certificate. The state has had almost a year to fix this problem ever since a federal judge declared the marriage ban unconstitutional.

Attorney General Pam Bondi could have avoided yet another costly lawsuit by directing all state agencies to simply follow the law. Instead she turned her back on repeated requests to take action and once again turned her back on LGBT Floridians.

Today, the National Center for Lesbian Rights and Florida attorneys Elizabeth Schwartz and Mary Meeks filed a complaint on behalf of Equality Florida Institute and three plaintiff couples to demand that the Bureau update its policies and respect the marriages of same-sex couples.
