Senator Saslaw's Blog

Springfield, VA — State Senator Dick Saslaw (D-Fairfax)  issued the following statement following the Supreme Court’s ruling that will guarantee marriage equality for all Americans :

“Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court is a major victory for the LGBT community and a historic leap forward for the United States. I applaud the Supreme Court for ruling on the side of equality. Discrimination against same-sex couples is no longer acceptable. We must keep working to ensure that all are welcome in Virginia and build on the significant progress we have made over the years.”

Springfield, VA – State Senator Dick Saslaw (D-Fairfax)  issued the following statement in light of Governor McAuliffe’s announcement to begin the process of removing the Confederate flag from Virginia license plates:


“I applaud Governor McAuliffe for taking action  to remove the Confederate Flag from license plates in the Commonwealth. This divisive symbol does not belong on our roadways or public spaces. I believe this action helps send a clear message that Virginia does not support the bleak period of our nation’s history that it represents. Our Commonwealth must be a welcoming place to all people and shedding this symbol is a step toward achieving that objective.”
