INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The State Senate is still in business, and is set to pass a plan to constitutionally prohibit gay marriages in Indiana.

A Senate committee approved the bill on a party-line vote on Wednesday and sent it to the full Senate for debate.

The measure would amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriages and civil unions.

The bill was already passed in the House this year, and if it clears the legislature, it would have to be passed again in 2013 or 2014 then be approved in a statewide vote in the 2014 elections.
