ADF Senior Legal Counsel Brian Raum to testify tomorrow at D.C. hearing on “A Referendum concerning the Jury and Marriage Amendment Act of 2009”

06/09/09 Aliiance Defense Fund Press Release:

Tomorrow the Washington, D.C., Board of Elections and Ethics will hold a hearing on a proposed referendum to let D.C. voters approve or reject the new law that allows D.C. to recognize out-of-state marriages. ADF Senior Legal Counsel Brian Raum will testify.

“The people of the District of Columbia should have the right to determine how marriage will be recognized in their district,” said Raum. “The D.C. city council decided to recognize ‘marriages’ from other jurisdictions that are not legal in the District of Columbia. It’s only common sense that the people of D.C., like Americans across the county, should have a say on something that runs contrary to so much of the district’s and the nation’s laws and history.”
