Tim Kaine statement on Supreme Court arguments on marriage equality case

tim kaine-newToday, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement as oral arguments begin at the Supreme Court on the question of marriage equality.

“As the Supreme Court prepares to hear oral arguments on the question of marriage equality, I’m hopeful it will decide the issue consistent with rulings in four federal appeals courts across the country – rulings that have allowed same-sex couples in 37 states and the District of Columbia to marry and receive equal protections under the law. I am proud to note this includes the Fourth Circuit’s decision in Bostic v. Schaefer, which ruled last July to strike down Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage. Momentum for LGBT rights has only increased since the Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013, and public support for LGBT rights continues to grow. I look forward to reviewing the arguments and eagerly anticipate the Court’s decision.”
