Resolution Introduced Urging Governor Corbett to Protect State’s Rights


Late yesterday afternoon Representative Daryl Metcalfe sent out a Co-sponsorship Memoranda asking for co-sponsors to a resolution “Urging Governor Corbett to Defend State’s Rights.”

The memo outlines Judge Jones’ usurpation of power in his decision to declare our Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and Governor Corbett’s decision not to appeal Jones’ decision as “a harmful precedent.” It also notes that last June’s US Supreme Court ruling in United States v. Windsor affirms that the “federal government may not interfere with a state’s definition or regulation of marriage.”

Representative Metcalfe needs co-sponsors added to this resolution. Contact your State Representative and ask him or her to co-sponsor Representative Metcalfe’s “Resolution Urging Governor Corbett to Defend states’ Rights.”
