Dear Friends of Marriage,
After passing the state senate by an overwhelming 38-10 margin in late January, the Indiana Marriage Amendment has now been formally transferred to the House for consideration.
Preliminary vote tallies already show a majority of House members in favor of the amendment, with a number still undecided. But House Speaker Patrick Bauer is threatening to bury the bill in committee, without even receiving a hearing in the Democrat-controlled House.
For six years, the House leadership has blocked the marriage amendment on procedural maneuvers, preventing the bill from ever coming to a vote of the full House, where the amendment is expected to pass easily.
Tell your representative that it's time for action! While Indiana has been considering the issue, thirty other states have already amended their state constitutions to protect marriage. And even once things start moving, amending the Indiana Constitution is at least a 4-year process. We simply can't afford to wait until our opponents gain a court victory before working to protect marriage as it's always been.
Please contact your state representative today!
