Indiana House Says YES To Constitutional Marriage Ban. But This Fight Ain’t Over

Posted on 15 Feb 2011 at 7:16pm

In a 70-26 vote, the Indiana State House has approved an amendment to the state constitution that would allow voters to ban recognition of same-sex marriage and civil unions. Sponsored by Republican Rep. Eric Turner, who believes "marriage is, and should be, the union of one man and one woman," the bill supposedly won't impact domestic partnerships or gay adoption. There's still time to fix things: The bill heads to the Senate, and even if it passes there, both chambers would have to approve the bill once more in a successive legislative session before going in front of voters in a statewide referendum.
