Assemblyman takes stand on the wrong side of history

Sacramento, Calif-  Assemblyman Roger Niello (R-Fair Oaks) issued the following statement today in regard to the U.S. District Court of Appeals ruling on Proposition 8:

“By overturning Proposition 8 today, the court has once again trampled all over the will of the voters.  More than 7 million Californians voted in support of Proposition 8 in 2008 and expressed their desire to have marriage remain an institution between a man and a woman,” said Assemblyman Niello.

“I call upon the 9th Circuit Court and, if necessary, the Supreme Court to review this decision immediately and affirm the people’s right to a direct democracy,” said Assemblyman Niello.
