Indiana House Speaker Brian BosmaIt looks like the fight over what could be the last state constitutional ban on gay marriage will come to a head in 2014.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma says he expects lawmakers to reach a conclusion this year on amending the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage, but hasn’t decided on timetable for tackling the issue in the 2014 session. Bosma, a Republican, did not include the ban on a list of formal House GOP priorities presented at the Indiana Chamber of commerce’s annual legislative preview Monday. But the issue is still likely to dominate much of the 2014 session.

More and more people are lining up against it, including mayors, clergy, and universities across the state. Let’s pull a Minnesota and vote against it, and then turn around and make full marriage equality happen.
