Speaker Heastie Applauds Supreme Court Decision on
Marriage Equality

I applaud the Supreme Court for recognizing what New York State has known for the last several years: legalizing same sex marriage is a matter of equality and justice. Todayís court ruling not only removes marriage discrimination but it also moves us as a nation forward on our journey toward forming a more perfect union. Iím proud our nation has finally embraced what so many have long held to be a basic human right and made it crystal clear: from this day forward, no one will ever be denied their constitutional right to marry.
