Gay Marriage Ban Amendment Squabble & Possible Lawsuit

by Sammy Edmonds posted Feb 26 2014 3:40PM
Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma is throwing cold water on a conservative group‘s bid to force a gay-marriage amendment onto this year‘s November ballot.
 
The Washington-based National Organization for Marriage is floating the possibility of a lawsuit arguing that the first sentence of the amendment has passed the required two legislative sessions, even though the version which passed the House and Senate in 2011 included a second sentence banning civil unions.
 
Bosma confirms he met briefly with the group this week, but says the notion of a lawsuit didn‘t even come up.  He says with the change, the two-year long process must begin again.
