It’s Official: Marriage Equality Now the Law of the Land
Statement from Rep. Barca on today’s historic Supreme Court ruling
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.

"We should not be spending another cent defending unconstitutional legislative maps."
"Between the GOP leadership in the legislature and the governor, this week has delivered a double whammy for Wisconsin workers."
"It’s ironic that the Republicans are seemingly using the same lack of transparency that led to our state having one of the worst cases of gerrymandering in history"
“The GOP has let the taxpayers of Wisconsin down.”
“This is another shameless attack by Republicans on Wisconsin workers.”
The governor has bragged about his tax policies, while neglecting to mention that his cuts have largely benefitted the wealthy of our state.
