Indiana to Vote on Amendment to Ban Gay Marriage With Bipartisan Support
Indiana has bipartisan support to ban same-sex marriage via constitutional amendment, but opposition is growing

In Indiana, for instance, lawmakers have already passed a ban on gay marriage and civil unions, but the state’s Republican-controlled legislature wants to strengthen it further with a constitutional amendment.

In fact, a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage has been brought up in Indiana’s state legislature every year since 2004 — and this year is no different.

The latest attempt, however, has the backing of lawmakers from both parties. It's a proposed amendment to the state's constitution in the vein of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, which the U.S. Supreme Court struck down earlier this year.

HJR-3 Heads To Indiana Senate After Passing House

The House of Representatives approved the amended version of HJR-3, the proposed constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage.

The House voted Monday to alter HJR-3, taking out the measure’s controversial second sentence banning civil unions. That version of the amendment passed the House by a comfortable margin today, 57-40.

The amended version of HJR-3 now heads to the Senate, where the second sentence could be reinserted.
