Rep Walberg Responds to Supreme Court's Decisions on Marriage

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Walberg released the following statement after the Supreme Court's decisions on marriage:

"Today's decisions mean states will continue addressing this issue, but I am troubled by the Court's willingness to allow a district federal court to overrule the people of California who voted to define marriage as between one man and one woman. I remain of the principled belief that marriage should continue to stand for the union of a man and woman. The activist Supreme Court has decided that the desires of adults are more important than the needs of children and the orderly continuance of society. It's also disappointing the Court overruled the Defense of Marriage Act, which passed the legislative branch with bipartisan majorities and was signed into law by President Clinton. I look forward to having both voters and their elected officials continuing to be engaged on this and many other issues before our democracy."
