MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement on today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing for full marriage equality in every state in the nation:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling represents a historic victory for millions of couples across the country who have waited years or even decades to enjoy the freedom to marry. One of our nation’s founding principles is that all are created equal, and I am pleased to see that principle upheld today by the highest court in the land.

“I also want to thank all the individuals and organizations who have worked so hard for so long to advance this cause and make this ruling possible. This is a truly monumental day for these loving couples and for everyone who believes in basic freedom for our citizens and equal protection under the law.
