Congresswoman Hartzler reacts to ruling on Missouri's natural marriage Constitutional amendment

October 4, 2014
Press Release

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) has issued the following statement in response to a judge’s decision muffling the voice of Missourians to determine their marriage policy

“I am deeply disappointed that a judge has overturned the will of the Missouri people by striking down the state’s 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. I look forward to this ruling being appealed to the United States Supreme Court and the right of Missouri citizens to make decisions regarding marriage policy being upheld.

Congresswoman Hartzler serves on the House Agriculture, Armed Services, and Budget Committees.
