Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen) commended the State Supreme Court decision to deny the state's most recent appeal against marriage equality:
"The battle for equality has been long and arduous for the LGBT community. Monday will be the beginning of a new era of equality in New Jersey.
"I applaud the court's decision to rule in the name of justice. It is the right thing to do. And it is time that all people who wish to share their lives together are able to do so, equally, under the law.
"The long-awaited dreams of many in New Jersey will thankfully become reality starting Monday."
