Greenwald: Ruling Means True Equality for All

(TRENTON) – New Jersey Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) issued the following statement Friday:

“I am overjoyed to see the Supreme Court will allow loving same-sex couples to get married starting Monday. At long last, true equality finally begins in New Jersey.
“The Supreme Court has now signaled what we in the Legislature have long expressed: marriage equality will be the law of the land in New Jersey; it is a simple matter of when, not if.
“While I remain confident the equal rights of LGBT families in our state will ultimately be vindicated by the Supreme Court on appeal, I will not give up the fight to enact marriage equality legislatively in our state.
“I urge my colleagues who have previously opposed marriage equality to stand up for our Constitution – with its fundamental values of fairness and equal justice for all – and support true equality for all families, not just some.”
