Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) issued the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court’s rulings in Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor:

“Today my spirits are soaring because the Supreme Court reaffirmed the promise of America by rejecting two blatantly unconstitutional measures that discriminated against millions of our families.

“I was proud to have voted against the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996, and it is so heartening to see that the federal government will now treat all marriages equally.

“Because of the Court’s ruling on Proposition 8, millions of Californians will be able to marry the person they love – with all the rights and responsibilities that go along with it.”
