At 12:01am on Thursday, December 6, 2012 – the first day marriage equality became legal in Washington State – U.S. Senator Patty Murray made the following statement:
“Today is a very special day in Washington. I am so proud of our state for taking this huge step toward providing equality for all members of our community.
“While today is a day for celebration, it is also a day to recommit to ongoing efforts for equality, and there is still a great deal of work to be done. I remain committed to ensuring that all citizens are treated fairly and equally. That is why I am a cosponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal DOMA. I am proud to stand with my colleagues in Congress to continue the fight to finally end this fourteen-year-old policy and make sure all married couples are treated equally in the eyes of the federal government.”
