Klobuchar Statement on Supreme Court Decisions on Same-Sex Marriage

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar today made the following statement after the Supreme Court released its decisions on two cases related to same-sex marriage: the Defense of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8.

"America is a nation founded on equality for all people and today the Supreme Court took a major step toward advancing that equality. I was a cosponsor of the bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and the Court's decision to strike it down is a true victory for those who have fought so hard for this day. As states continue to take up this critical issue, my hope is that they will choose to stand on the side of equality and follow in the footsteps of Minnesota, where we successfully fought back a divisive constitutional amendment and enacted marriage equality with bipartisan support."
