Gov. Perry Statement on Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Austin, TX

Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding a federal judge ruling Texas' same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional:

"Texans spoke loud and clear by overwhelmingly voting to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman in our Constitution, and it is not the role of the federal government to overturn the will of our citizens. The 10th Amendment guarantees Texas voters the freedom to make these decisions, and this is yet another attempt to achieve via the courts what couldn't be achieved at the ballot box. We will continue to fight for the rights of Texans to self-determine the laws of our state."
