Pence Denies Accusations of Failing to Provide I-D's for Same Sex Spouses of Guardsmen

Governor Mike Pence says Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is flatly wrong in accusing Indiana of failing to provide I-D's for same-sex spouses of National Guardsmen.

Hagel called out Indiana and eight other states Thursday for failing to issue I-D cards to allow same-sex couples to receive benefits.

He charges they're defying federal law and causing division in the ranks.

Pence acknowledges Indiana was slow in getting cards issued, but says the problem's been fixed for four weeks now.
