Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02), a co-chair of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus, issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Governor Scott Walker and Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen’s appeal after the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Wisconsin’s same-sex marriage ban:

“Full equality is here to stay in Wisconsin,” Rep. Pocan said. “The Supreme Court’s rejection of Attorney General Van Hollen’s appeal puts an end to a dark chapter in Wisconsin’s history where many are treated as second-class citizens simply based on who they choose to love. Today’s ruling reaffirms we are all equal under the law.”
