Hartzler: Ruling is an affront to the states

June 26, 2015
Press Release

WASHINGTON - Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.) released the following statement in regards to today’s Supreme Court ruling in the Obergefell v. Hodges case:

“I am disappointed in the Court’s decision to stifle the voices of Missouri’s voters.  Decisions on marriage policy should be left in the hands of the 50 states, allowing those who wish to define marriage as being between one man and one woman, as we did in Missouri, to do so.  Today’s ruling tramples on the voice of the people.  I will continue to champion marriage as the union between one man and one woman so every child has the opportunity to have both a mom and a dad.”

Congresswoman Hartzler represents Missouri’s Fourth Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.  She serves on the House Agriculture, Armed Services, and Budget Committees.
