USA, Indiana: House Committee Advances Marriage Equality Ban

Written by scott on January 23rd, 2014

IndianaWell, it looks like House Speaker Brian Bosma got what he wanted when he moved the gay marriage ban to a new committee.

Towleroad.com reports:

The Indiana House Elections and Apportionment Committee advanced HJR-3, the constitutional ban on same-sex marriage by a vote of 9-3 along party lines after more than four hours of debate. The bill will now move to the full House. The bill was moved to the Elections and Apportionment Committee by House Speaker Brian Bosma (pictured) in a power play after it began to look like it might fail in the House Judiciary Committee. Bosma’s unusual move turned out to be successful for the anti-gay conservatives.

It’s stunning how much effort goes into passing something like this, especially now, when there are so many other pressing needs in Indiana that the legislature seems to be ignoring.
