Progress Michigan Congratulates LGBT Couples Whose Marriages Are Now Legal in Michigan
MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding Gov. Snyder’s decision to not appeal a federal judge’s ruling saying that Michigan must recognize the over 300 same-sex marriages that occurred last year.
Earlier today, Progress Michigan called on Snyder to stay appeal on the federal decision.
“Today is another step towards a fully-inclusive and welcoming Michigan. We are happy that the Governor finally abandoned his futile attempt to deny loving couples their right to marry,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “We look forward to the day that the U.S. Supreme Court makes marriage equality a reality across the country.”
