Burnam said in a [in a June 26] statement following the Supreme Court’s ruling that he planned to file the bill, citing the Supreme Court’s opinion on DOMA.
“The Supreme Court found today that the federal government acted to ‘impose a disadvantage, a separate status, and so a stigma upon all who enter into same-sex marriages,’” Burnam said in the statement. “I can assure you the Texas Legislature did the same. As such, it is time to renounce our homophobic state laws and usher in marriage equality in Texas.”
“It is the shame of our state that we continually have to wait for a federal judge to make us do the right thing,” Burnam said. “It happened with segregated schools, segregated parks and segregated housing. Let’s not let it happen with segregated marriage rights.”
