Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s Reponses To Two Landmark SCOTUS Rulings

SENATOR KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND STATEMENT ON STUDENT LOAN RULING

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released the following statement on the Supreme Court decision in Biden v. Nebraska:

“The Supreme Court’s latest misguided decision will undermine hardworking Americans building a better future for themselves and their families. President Biden’s plan to alleviate at least $10,000 in student loan debt was an incredibly important measure for so many families—it could have helped as many as 43 million people climb out of crippling debt.

For far too long, students have had to shoulder insurmountable financial debt to pursue higher education. Americans who believe in progress must channel our outrage into fighting for an America that opens doors to affordable, quality higher education and provides students with the resources and support they need.”


SENATOR GILLIBRAND STATEMENT ON SUPREME COURT RULING ON LGBTQ RIGHTS

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released the following statement on the Supreme Court decision in 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis:

“This shameful decision by the Supreme Court overturns years of precedent and sets back decades of progress on LGBTQ equality in this country. Businesses should never have the right to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. I am outraged by this ruling and remain committed to fighting to ensure that members of the LGBTQ community can live free from discrimination and have the same civil rights as everyone else.”
