MADISON – After the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of defining marriage equality as a constitutionally protected right, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“Our communities are strengthened when committed couples and loving families share equal rights under the law. Today’s decision confirms what many in our state have known for years: Love is Love. While the ruling in this case has settled the debate over marriage equality, the fight for equal rights continues across our country. I am proud to stand on the right side of history and hope today’s ruling will help move our state forward and bring our country closer together.”
