CHAFEE STATES POSITION ON GAY MARRIAGE AMENDMENT

WASHINGTON, DC - Senator Lincoln Chafee released the following statement in response to President Bush's announced support of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage:

"I recognize that many Americans are opposed to same-sex marriage.

I support civil unions between same-sex couples and believe that each state should be free to make its own decision on this issue."
