The 2014 legislative session in Indiana began Tuesday. Lawmakers are set to consider passing a marriage equality ban bill for the second time.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

Supporters of the ban are seeking to amend the constitution to prohibit same-sex marriage, civil unions and benefits for same-sex couples. But at least three lawmakers who voted for the proposal three years ago have since reversed their positions, reports the Courier-Journal, and several other lawmakers are re-considering their support. Opponents of the amendment have run a highly visible and coordinated campaign so far, but it remains unclear whether they will succeed in winning enough lawmakers to their side.

Even if the ban was approved for second time, it would still have to go before voters for final approval. And if the bill is amended, it will have to go through another session of the legislature for a re-vote.
