Senator Christopher “Kip” Bateman (R- Somerset), the original prime sponsor of referendum seeking voter approval to amend the state constitution to legalize same sex marriage in New Jersey, today welcomed Assemblyman Reed Gusciora’s support of putting the question to the voters.
“When I introduced the resolution seeking to put a constitutional amendment before voters, Assemblyman Gusciora and others attacked the idea,” said Bateman. “I’m glad that he now understands what I was saying in February: that this is the most pragmatic course of action. A straight up or down vote on legalizing same sex marriage in the constitution, NOT a ‘defense of marriage’ law, gives finality to a matter that if handled by simple legislation could be repealed in the future or mired in litigation for years.”

"That's state money and the speaker has never raised an objection to that, and now all of a sudden she objects to her own bill. She's objecting on a basis she hasn't objected before on the TAG Grant program. Let's face it everybody, this is just politics. It's election year and it's politics." - Gov. Chris Christie, on Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-34).- PolitickerNJ.com
