Testimony of US Senator Brian Schatz on SB1

Hawaii Independent Staff

Linda Schatz, spouse of US Senator Brian Schatz, delivered his testimony this morning on SB1.

Now is the time for Hawaii to grant full equality under the law to our LGBT friends, family, and neighbors. I am writing to urge you into passing same-sex marriage during this special legislative session.

For too long, same-sex couples have been denied the same rights, benefits, and protections that everyone deserves. I urge you to pass this important legislation, so that same-sex couples can be treated equally under the law.
