Gay Marriage Ban Bill Amended in House

by Sammy Edmonds posted Jan 29 2014 3:39PM
The Indiana House yesterday deleted the controversial second sentence of a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. The second line of the amendment was intended to ban civil unions, but opponents raised the specter of domestic-abuse laws or domestic-partner health benefits being invalidated.
 
The House could take a final vote on the slimmed-down amendment as early as today. If it passes, the Senate could still try to restore the language and force a vote in the House on the original version of the bill.
