TRENTON – Senator Richard J. Codey (D – Essex, Morris) issued the following statement today regarding Senate passage of S1, which would establish marriage equality in New Jersey:
“The world isn’t going to end because of this vote. All that will happen is that more people will be able to marry those they love. That’s it. Your street, your neighborhood, your place of worship, your schools, your town…nothing will be different come tomorrow.
“Today was a great first step in the effort to achieve marriage equality in New Jersey. When it comes down to it, it’s really just a matter of common sense and decency.”
