Udall Celebrates Supreme Court Marriage Equality Decision

WASHINGTON - Today, U.S. Senator Tom Udall issued the following statement following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to affirm marriage equality nationwide:

"Today the U.S. Supreme Court stood on the right side of the law — and on the right side of history. This decision reaffirms our Constitution's cornerstone of equality for all. Every loving, committed couple deserves the respect and dignity that comes with marriage, and I'm proud the nation is now joining with New Mexico to extend marriage equality to all citizens. This is a joyous day for families nationwide, and especially for those New Mexico couples who no longer have to fear their marriages will be deemed invalid once they cross state lines."
