LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky's state House has passed a bill to create one marriage license form for both gay and straight couples.

A marriage license applicant would have the option of checking "bride," "groom" or "spouse" beside his or her name.

The bill now goes back to the Senate, which passed a different version calling for separate forms for gay and straight couples.

The bill is in response to last year's controversy involving Kim Davis, a county clerk who spent time in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
