LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today issued the following statement regarding the rulings by the United States Supreme Court in United States v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry:

"The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states, not the federal government, retain the constitutional authority to define marriage.  Michigan's Constitution stands and the will of the people to define marriage as between one man and one woman endures in the Great Lakes State."
