FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – The controversial bill that would define marriage in the Indiana State Constitution could be voted on in the full House at the beginning of this week.

HJR-3 is a proposed amendment that, if passed, would recognize marriage as only being between a man and woman.

It would also ban civil unions between two men or two women.

But, according to an Indianapolis Star poll, state lawmakers appear split on the bill with 38 for and 38 against the measure. The remaining 24 are undecided.

If the bill passes the Indiana House of Representatives, it will go on to the State Senate next month.

Gay marriage is already banned by law in the Hoosier state.
