Senator Baldwin Statement on President Biden Signing the Respect for Marriage Act Into Law

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) released the following statement on the Respect for Marriage Act being signed into law by President Biden:

“Today, we are making history and making a difference for millions of Americans. We are telling the millions of same-sex and interracial couples that we see them and we respect them. I am thinking of couples like my dear friends Margaret and Denise, who no longer have to worry their marriage could be on the chopping block. Because of our bipartisan work to pass the Respect for Marriage Act, millions of couples like Margaret and Denise can rest assured that the rights, freedoms, and responsibilities that come with marriage cannot be taken away by an activist Supreme Court. I am proud to have worked across the aisle to earn bipartisan support for our Respect for Marriage Act and am overcome with joy to see President Biden make marriage equality the law of the land.”
