Bennet Statement on Supreme Court Decision Declining Review of Same-Sex Marriage Cases

Paves the Way for Same-Sex Marriage in Colorado

Denver, CO - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision not to review several cases that have overturned same-sex marriage bans:

"Today's move by the Supreme Court is a major step for Colorado's same-sex marriage advocates and a major step for equality. Colorado will join the growing list of states with full marriage equality. Marriage is a special right that same-sex couples deserve to enjoy, and they should have the same rights and opportunities that the law grants to Susan and me."
