Congresswoman Hartzler comments on judge’s ruling regarding Missouri’s natural marriage Constitutional amendment
Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) has issued the following statement regarding a St. Louis Circuit Judge’s ruling that Missouri’s natural marriage amendment is unconstitutional:
“I am disappointed that a judge has overturned the will of the Missouri people by striking down the state’s natural marriage Constitutional amendment recognizing marriage as a union of one man and one woman. Missouri citizens overwhelmingly approved this amendment with 71 percent of our citizens supporting it. Now it is up to the Missouri Supreme Court to uphold the will of the people. I am hopeful the Court will respect the people's Constitutional right to determine their public policy.”
Congresswoman Hartzler serves on the House Agriculture, Armed Services, and Budget Committees.
