Rep. Himes On Marriage Equality Decision

“I am extremely pleased that the Supreme Court sided with equality and fairness by overturning the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act and dismissing the Prop 8 case. Today, the Supreme Court righted a grievous historical wrong, reaffirming what we already knew to be true: that loving, committed couples should all receive the same rights and benefits from the federal government regardless of orientation. Thousands of Connecticut couples legally married in our state have been waiting for recognition by their government, and I am pleased that their marriages will soon be considered just as valid as my own.”
