Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) issued the following statement after U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement:

“While I did not always agree with Justice Kennedy, I appreciate his support for marriage equality and reproductive and civil rights in several cases. With the retirement of Justice Kennedy, President Trump is now able to appoint a second Supreme Court Justice and the values they bring to the job could shape our country for many generations to come. I urge my colleagues in the Senate to remain vigilant of any appointee that might endanger Americans’ basic rights of liberty, equality and opportunity.”
