(Little Rock) (AP) – Members of Arkansas’ congressional delegation say they still oppose gay marriage despite the U.S. Supreme Court striking down a provision of a federal law denying federal benefits to married gay couples and clearing the way for same-sex marriage to resume in California.

The state’s congressmen and senators said Wednesday they still support the amendment Arkansas voters approved in 2004 defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

Justices on Wednesday tossed out a part of the Defense of Marriage Act that prevented legally married same-sex couples from receiving tax, health and pension benefits. The court didn’t rule on California’s same-sex marriage ban, leaving in place a trial court’s ruling that it’s unconstitutional.

Opponents of Arkansas’ ban said they hoped the decision would help change minds about the issue.
