From: Senator Jeremy Miller
Senator Jeremy Miller (R-Winona) released the following statement on his vote on House File 1054, the same-sex marriage authorization bill:
“I have received thousands of correspondence from constituents specifically related to the debate over redefining marriage in Minnesota. I’ve had the opportunity to visit with many groups of people on both sides of this debate, both at the Capitol and in the district. There are wonderful people and compelling arguments on each side of this debate. I thank all of my constituents for sharing their views and personal stories related to this issue.
Although views about same-sex marriage are changing, there is still a clear majority of people in the district I represent that support the traditional definition of marriage. It is an honor to serve the people of Fillmore, Houston and Winona counties and my vote today reflects the current view of the majority of people I represent.”
