Governor Brian Sandoval released the following statement today after the United States Supreme Court issued its decision in the Obergefell v. Hodges case.

“Today’s ruling confirms the State’s position that the arguments against marriage equality are no longer defensible. The highest court in the land has decided the issue once and for all for Nevada and for our nation,” said Governor Brian Sandoval. “This decision has a deeply personal impact on many Nevadans and marks a significant moment in our nation’s history. The issue of same sex marriage is settled in Nevada and we must move forward together, as the Nevada family.”
