FL Gov Scott: Florida is a 'Traditional Marriage State'
The historic Supreme Court decision to scrap the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), deeming it “unconstitutional,” prompting Florida Governor Rick Scott to ‘stand his ground’ on the issue, declaring that Florida is a “traditional marriage state.” Scott told reporters in Tallahassee that he will “uphold the law of the land, and that’s the law of our state.”
“It impacted federal law, not state law. In 2008, Florida voters amended our constitution so that we’re a traditional marriage state. Marriage is between a man and a woman,” said Republican Gov. Rick Scott. “As governor of the state I’ll uphold the existing law of the land, and that’s the law of our state.” -AP
