Inslee statement on U.S. Supreme Court sending Arlene's Flowers case to Washington State Supreme Court

Story Body

"Washington will remain a place where members of the LGBTQ community can live, work and raise families without fear of discrimination.

"Today’s decision, asking our Court to reconsider the Arlene's Flowers ruling in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent holding in the Colorado case, does not surprise us or cause us any concern. Unlike the recent decision in the Colorado case, in Washington there was never any indication of religious bias or hostility in our pursuit to protect consumers from discrimination. I have full confidence that the state will prevail once again."
