Rep. McNerney Applauds Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage Equality
Washington – Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) today issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide:
“This country was founded on the principle that all people are treated equally under the law, and with this Supreme Court decision we take another step toward realizing that equality for the LGBT community. Now all Americans, regardless of preference, have the freedom and the right to marry the person they love. This is a historic moment for our country as we continue to seek equality and justice for all. It is a momentous day for everyone who wants to build a family and life with the person they love.”
