Attorney General To Extend Recognition Of Same-Sex Marriage Rights To All States

Posted: Updated:

(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."
