Statement from IN Senate Dem Leader Tim Lanane on SCOTUS rulings

Posted:

Indiana Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) issued the following statement regarding the United States Supreme Court rulings on United States v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry:

"I believe these are a pair of landmark decisions for civil rights in our country where the Supreme Court has chosen to clear a path for same sex marriages to be recognized. 

"Moving forward, it is my hope that Indiana becomes a state that welcomes all, regardless of their sexual orientation, rather than taking unnecessary measures to make Indiana inhospitable."

"As we work to attract the best and brightest to our state, it is imperative that anyone looking to contribute to the Hoosier economy feels welcome.

"Study after study shows growing support for marriage equality for all Hoosiers. We must ensure that our policies reflect this evolving sentiment.

"It is my hope that lawmakers can put this divisive debate behind them, and focus on the priorities that matter to every Hoosier family- a strong economy, good schools, and thriving local communities.

Sen. Lanane represents Indiana Senate District 25 includes the portions of Madison and Delaware counties, including the City of Muncie and the southeastern portion of the City of Anderson.
