Rep. Lofgren on Prop 8 Overturn by U.S. Appeals Court


Location: Washington, DC

Today Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Chair of the California Democratic Congressional Delegation, released the following statement in response to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Proposition 8--the 2008 ballot measure limiting marriage between a man and a woman--violated the U.S. Constitution:

"There is no doubt today's decision is welcomed by Californians whose dreams of marriage were put on hold by this unconstitutional ban," said Rep. Zoe Lofgren. "But with the architects of Prop 8 vowing an appeal to the Supreme Court, we know the battle for marriage equality is not over. This is a fundamental American civil right, and I am committed to standing with those fighting to make marriage equality a reality."
