Casey Statement Following Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage

Washington, D.C.- Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a statement following the United States Supreme Court’s decision regarding marriage:

“Today’s ruling is a substantial victory for equality across our nation. This was the right decision and will ensure that all couples will be treated with basic dignity when it comes to marriage. As a U.S. Senator representing Pennsylvania, I have heard from many LGBT Pennsylvanians and their families who want nothing more than equal rights under the law.  As one mother from Pennsylvania said in a letter to me:

‘My kids have two proud and loving parents who are honest [and] work hard.  I want my kids to know they are equal and our family is equal . . . I just want my family to be treated equally and with respect by my state and federal government.’

From this day forward that family that wrote to me and millions of LGBT families across the nation can know that their family is equal.”
