Palazzo Expresses Disappointment with Supreme Court’s Same Sex Marriage Ruling

Washington, DC – Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-4) released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same sex marriage nationwide:

“I am extremely disappointed in the Supreme Court’s decision today. Under the United States Constitution, marriage laws have always been a matter left for the states, and Mississippians have overwhelming opposed same sex marriage time and again. The Supreme Court’s ruling not only undermines the will of the people of Mississippi and the Constitution, but tears at the very fabric of our democracy by setting an alarming precedent for the future of states’ rights.”
