Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse today joined President Joe Biden at the White House to take part in a historic bill signing for the Respect for Marriage Act, landmark legislation to enshrine marriage equality into federal law.  Whitehouse, a cosponsor of the bill and longtime supporter of marriage equality, released the following statement:

“I’m very proud that Rhode Island was an early adopter of marriage equality.  Today, we have ensured that marriage equality will remain the law of the land.  I am thrilled to join President Biden as we protect the freedom of every American to marry the person they love and take this decision out of the Supreme Court’s reach once and for all.”
