Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision on Obergefell v. Hodges:
Wicker is a cosponsor of the “First Amendment Defense Act,” which would prevent the federal government from discriminating against any individual or institution that defines marriage as a union of one man and one woman. It would also bar the government from denying any federal grants, contracts, licenses, or tax exemptions from individuals or groups based on their beliefs.
