Van Hollen Statement on Senate Vote to Move Forward on Respect for Marriage Act

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement regarding his vote in favor of moving forward to Senate consideration of the Respect for Marriage Act:

“It is long past time for Congress to make clear that equal rights are guaranteed across America, no matter who you love, who you marry, or where you live.
