Action Photo Senator from Alaska

113th Congress

Elected Until 2014

Position on Marriage Equality

Statement

 

Position

Agrees with the following:

Gay and lesbian couples should not be denied the ability to pledge their love and commitment through the civil institution of marriage. I believe that two committed adults of the same sex should be able to receive a government-issued marriage license, while religious institutions retain their right to determine which marriages they will perform.
