Gov. Rick Snyder issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to consider cases from Michigan and three other states regarding same-sex marriage:
"We appreciate that the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear an issue that has been divisive in our state and others. It's important for the same-sex marriage question to be resolved once and for all at the highest level. I will respect the decision of the court on an issue that has stirred passionate discussion and hope that Michiganders, and others across our country, can come together as we move forward."
