LGBTQ Nation reports:
The Indiana House has voted in favor of an altered proposal that would ban same-sex marriage in the state constitution, while leaving the door open for civil unions and employee benefits for same-sex couples. The House narrowly voted 57-40 Tuesday in favor of the measure. The proposed ban now heads to the Indiana Senate, where members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are set to take up the issue. “The future of marriage belongs in the hands of Hoosier voters; not judges, not the media, not activists, not lobbyists,” said Rep. Eric Turner, R-Cicero, and the author of proposed ban.
Because a group of Democrats and Republicans were able to strip out language from the bill that would’ve also banned civil unions, the bill will likely have to be voted on again in 2016.
