Statement from Senator Liz Krueger on Failure of Same-Sex Marriage Bill

Liz Krueger

December 02, 2009

“While I was pleased that the Senate finally had the decency to bring same-sex marriage legislation up for a vote today, I am extremely disappointed in the failure of so many of my colleagues to recognize the ability to marry as a basic civil right for all.  At least we now know where every Senator stands on this critical issue and I expect that a number of them will soon be hearing from some very angry constituents for denying them equal rights.

I am hopeful that today was only the beginning of a process that will result in the eventual passage of a same-sex marriage bill.”
