SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 1028
         WHEREAS, The Members of the Senate of the State of Texas do
  hereby affirm our sworn commitment to faithfully execute the
  duties of the office to which we have been duly elected and to
  uphold the Texas Constitution and preserve the intent of our
  state's supreme governing document; in effect since February 15,
  1876, the Texas Constitution stands as the basis of principles
  that shall continue to guide the laws that we enact and the values
  that we promote; and
         WHEREAS, We solemnly proclaim that the institution of
  marriage is clearly established in Article 1, Section 32, of the
  Texas Constitution as a union consisting of one man and one
  woman; we also find that this belief is widely shared in Texas,
  exhibited by Article 1, Section 32, a constitutional amendment
  duly proposed by the 79th Texas Legislature and ratified by more
  than 76 percent of Texas voters participating in the November 8,
  2005, election; and
         WHEREAS, Traditional marriage is the bedrock institution
  of both our society and the success Texas has been blessed to
  experience since our admission as the 28th state within these
  United States of America; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 84th
  Legislature, Regular Session, hereby affirm the preservation of
  the present definition of marriage as being the legal union of
  one man and one woman as husband and wife and pledge to uphold and
  defend this principle that is so dearly held by Texans far and wide.
