Senator Warren Limmer Releases Statement on Passage of Marriage Amendment


Senator Limmer released the following statement today after the MN Marriage Amendment passed the Senate 38-27:

“I’m proud that my colleagues in the Senate joined me in support of this constitutional amendment that gives Minnesotans the opportunity to define marriage as solely those unions between one man and one woman.  There are a variety of perspectives on this issue. That’s why I think allowing a small number of politicians, or activist judges in St. Paul to decide is not acceptable.  It is time to empower Minnesota with a choice to define marriage,” said Senator Limmer.  “Our intent is to take a proactive approach, giving the public time to get information and discuss the issue in their communities well in advance [of] the 2012 Election.”
