Murkowski Responds to Supreme Court Ruling

Decision Respects Limited Government, States’ Rights and Equal Treatment

WASHINGTON, DC — Senator Lisa Murkowski today shared her thoughts about the Supreme Court deciding the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional:

“I welcome today’s Supreme Court decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act because the federal government should empower households, respect the decisions of states and otherwise get out of the way.  This ruling represents victories for states’ rights and equal treatment under the law.”
