"We have always sought finality on this important constitutional issue, and today the United States Supreme Court provided the clarity our state and country was seeking.
Our country has vigorously debated the issue, with good people on all sides. Many on both sides feel strongly about the issue, having deeply held and sincere beliefs.
Legal efforts were not about personal beliefs or opinions, but rather, the rule of law. The United States Supreme Court has the final word on interpreting the Constitution, and the court has spoken."
