Senator Wyden Statement on Supreme Court Marriage Equality Decision

WASHINGTON –(ENEWSPF)–June 26, 2015.  Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favor of marriage equality in Obergefell v. Hodges:

“The Supreme Court’s decision is a wonderful leap forward along the arc toward justice Dr. King spoke of, in recognizing that all Americans should have the freedom to marry the person they love,” Wyden said.

“But the fight for equality does not end today. As lawmakers, we must now turn our attention to ensuring that LGBTQ Americans enjoy the dignity and equal treatment under the law the Court has proclaimed in every other aspect of their lives – employment, housing, health care and beyond. To that end, I will soon be introducing legislation to recognize and protect that dignity in our nation’s tax laws as one step further toward full equality for all Americans.”
