Scott Walker: If the Supreme Court Redefines Marriage, a Federal Marriage Amendment is the Only Viable Option

With a decision from the U.S. Supreme Court on whether states can retain in their laws the understanding of marriage as the union of a husband and wife expected in June, it is worth highlighting Governor Scott Walker’s support for a federal constitutional amendment, reported earlier here.

In an interview with Shane Vander Hart in Iowa for the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, Governor Walker held out hope the Supreme Court would do the right thing but said that if they did not, “the only other viable option out there is to support a constitutional amendment, which I would, believing not just in marriage being defined as one man, one woman, but I also believe in states rights.  I believe that is an issue that appropriately belongs in the states.”
