Ellis praises Supreme Court decision on marriage equality


(Austin, TX) // Today, Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston) released the following statement in response to this morning’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling regarding marriage equality:

“I am elated that marriage equality is now the law of the land, allowing loving, committed couples to formally celebrate their union. The Supreme Court took a long overdue step to recognize the human dignity of our gay and lesbian friends. No longer will they be considered second-class citizens, unable to marry the person they love. This sends a strong message to the world that equality under the law is one of the guiding principles of our nation’s Constitution.”
