Sec. of Transportation Peter Buttigieg weighs in on Biden decision to sign Respect for Marriage Act
Peter Buttigieg, Secretary of Transportation: "It's a huge relief. Look, our marriage has been the cornerstone of our family life, but more so since we've become parents to our amazing twins, our son and our daughter. But for as long as we've been married, we've also lived knowing that marriage only exists by the grace of a single vote on the United States Supreme Court. This changes that. It says as a matter of law, that no matter what the court does, we wouldn't have to, for example, worry about which state we were traveling to, to know whether we would be able to, be in an emergency, to catch up to one another in a hospital."
