INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (21Alive) - An Indiana House panel approved Wednesday night legislation that would impose a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in the Hoosier State.
The House Elections & Apportionment Committee passed the bill on a 9-3 party-line vote. The proposed amendment that would limit marriage to one man and one woman now moves on to the full House of Representatives.
State Speaker of the House Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, reassigned the bill from the House Judiciary Committee to the Elections & Apportionment Committee on Tuesday. The move caught political heat from those opposed to the legislation. Bosma cites concern over lack of votes in the Judiciary Committee as the reason he moved the bill.
If the bill passes the House, it would move on to the State Senate for passage.
From there, it would go on the November ballot as a voter referendum.
