Lansing – Senator Curtis Hertel (D-Lansing) issued the following statement after Governor Rick Snyder announced today that he would not appeal a federal court’s decision that the state must recognize the marriages of 300 same-sex couples who wed in Michigan nearly a year ago.
“Governor Snyder has just announced he will not appeal the ruling that declared the 300 same sex marriages performed in Michigan legal. I am extremely happy for the couples whose marriage and commitment will finally be honored by the State of Michigan. This in no way means our work is done. We must continue to fight to end discrimination in our state. But today I am happy for small victories and for the families whose commitment and love is finally being recognized.”
