Prop. 8 ruling is disappointing, says Pelosi

Like Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized the California Supreme Court's decision on Tuesday to uphold Prop. 8.

In particular, Pelosi criticized the proposition for restricting rights.

"Today's ruling by the Supreme Court in support of Proposition 8 is deeply disappointing because this ballot initiative takes away individual rights," Pelosi said.

Pelosi also reiterated her support of same-sex marriage.

"I have long fought for equality for all of California's families and will strongly support efforts to restore marriage equality in California," she said.
