Gay Marriage Amendment Changes Die in State Senate

by Sammy Edmonds posted Feb 14 2014 3:47PM
The controversial second sentence of a gay-marriage amendment to the Indiana constitution is gone for good.
 
Two weeks after the House deleted language banning not only same-sex marriage but civil unions, supporters in the Senate let the last opportunity to alter the amendment slide Thursday, abandoning plans to try to add the provision back in to the bill.
 
Opponents who had packed the hall outside the Senate chamber erupted in cheers as Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann gaveled the resolution closed to further changes. President Pro Tem David Long declined to discuss why the provision wasn‘t called for debate, but Carmel Republican Mike Delph said that supporters didn‘t have the votes to pass it.
