Statement by Senator McKinney on Today’s Supreme Court Decision

October 10, 2008

State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney (R-Fairfield):

“While I believe these decisions are better left to elected representatives, it is ultimately the province of the State Supreme Court to interpret our constitution. The Court carried-out that responsibility today and ruled that the institution of marriage in Connecticut must include same sex couples. Whether people agree or disagree, we all need to respect the Court’s decision and abide by the ruling.”
