TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Board of Regents has appointed a committee to study how legalization of same-sex marriage could affect state universities.

Regent Fred Logan said Wednesday he expects the U.S. Supreme Court to issue a ruling that will “at a minimum” require states to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. Or he says the court could strike down state bans on the marriages.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports if that happens, universities will have to consider issues including health insurance and benefits for employees and student housing policies.

Several Kansas counties are granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples but the state is not recognizing those marriages.
