Polis cheers Justice Department’s decision on DOMA
In response to the Administration’s conclusion that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage (Act), a bill that restricts the federal definition of marriage to one man and one woman, is unconstitutional, Congressman Jared Polis released the following statement.
“I applaud the Administration for finally recognizing what my colleagues and I have long criticized—that this is a discriminatory, unjust law.
