Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin announced Tuesday that the name of the county clerk will no longer be required to appear on marriage license forms in the commonwealth.

"To ensure that the sincerely held religious beliefs of all Kentuckians are honored I took action to revise the Clerk marriage license form," according to a tweet from the newly elected Republican governor.

The executive action came three months after Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis gained national attention for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because it conflicted with her Christian beliefs. Davis was sent to jail for five days.

Bevin is hoping that eliminating the name of the clerk from the form will make it easier for officials with religious objections to process the licenses.
