Indiana: Vote Looming on State Marriage Amendment?


More encouraging news from the Hoosier State!

A committee vote [on the proposed state marriage amendment] will come next week, then the full Senate would weigh in. It has passed that chamber numerous times in the past.

If it passes again, no other action is necessary this session because it already passed the House.

The legislature must approve the measure again in 2013 or 2014 before reaching the ballot for Hoosiers to make the final decision in 2014. (Journal Gazette)

Last month the same proposal passed the Indiana House of Representatives 70-26, with over 40 co-sponsors including the Speaker of the House. Should the bill pass the Senate, Hoosiers could eventually have their say in 2014.
