Statement in Support of Kentucky Attorney General's Decision in Same-Sex Marriage Case

WASHINGTON – Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the following statement in response to Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway’s decision not to appeal the recent federal court ruling that struck down Kentucky’s ban on recognizing same-sex marriages performed outside the Commonwealth:

“Today, Attorney General Conway made a courageous decision to stand up for equality in Kentucky and against a discriminatory law. He gave this case the thorough analysis it required, and his conclusion will place him and our Commonwealth on the right side of history.

“The fact that Jack made this decision in the face of personal political risk underscores his strong leadership and his commitment to ensuring that all Kentucky families are treated equally under the law.”
