On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry. The historic 5-4 decision overturns a 6th Circuit Court case brought by Ohio native Jim Obergefell and invalidates bans on same-sex marriage across the country, including the one in Ohio. Rep. Kuhns issued this statement following the court’s historic ruling:

“My own marriage wasn’t legal until 1967 so today’s decision is very personal to me, I am beyond grateful that every American will have an opportunity to experience the joy I felt when I exchanged my vows.”
