Press Release

Lincoln, NE – Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (NE-01) released the following statement after the Supreme Court announced its ruling in the Obergefell v. Hodges case:

“Like most Americans, I have no interest in seeing any person live in loneliness or fear. The issue of marriage, however, invokes the deepest questions of human intimacy, societal organization, and the rights of children. We must also remember that America is a pluralistic society where differing views should be respected.” 

Fortenberry is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
