The Indiana Senate Judiciary Committee voted this morning 7-3 to approve the Indiana marriage amendment, sending the measure to the full senate for a vote.
Thanks to each of you who have contacted your legislators in support of this important measure. Today's vote was a huge victory as we work to bring the amendment across the finish line.
The Senate has passed this measure five times in the past. Gay marriage advocates know they can't block the measure in the Senate—their best hope is to delay the process with changes that would need to be approved again by the House. Such a move would delay and perhaps kill the amendment amidst the ongoing budget and union disputes in the House.
Please take a moment today to contact your state senator, urging him or her to vote for the amendment as drafted. Click here to send your message today!
