Virginia Republicans vote to kill amendment that would have removed the now-defunct marriage equality ban from Constitution of Virginia
Richmond, VA – Today, Democratic Leader Eileen Filler-Corn issued the following statement:
“This morning, Virginia Republicans continued their assault on LGBTQIA+ individuals by killing an amendment that would have removed Virginia’s now-defunct marriage equality ban from the state constitution.
Our Democratic House majority passed laws to make Virginia a more open and inclusive place. As a result, more businesses chose to relocate and expand in the Commonwealth. Virginia Republicans threaten to take us backwards by stoking the flames of hate and division, rather than accurately reflecting the laws of the country.”
