Rep. Speier on California Supreme Court's Ruling on Marriage Equality

Press Release

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC



"I applaud the California Supreme Court's decision today to strike down the state's ban on same-sex marriage. This is the defining civil rights issue of the decade and the justices appropriately recognized the importance of not discriminating against those wishing to commit to a familial relationship. As a State Senator, I was honored to officiate at over twenty weddings for gay and lesbian constituents. It is encouraging that the four-judge majority included three Republican jurists, perhaps signaling the end of marriage equality being used as a partisan political wedge."
