One more last effort to salvage the Gay Marriage Ban in this session of the Indiana Legislature.
Republican Senator Mike Delph, of Carmel, says that he wants to use a procedural move to try to put a ban on civil unions back into a state constitutional amendment against gay marriage—although he’s not sure the votes are there to approve it. Without the language on civil unions, Delph said, the proposal does little if anything to legally protect traditional marriage. The proposed amendment now won’t face a public vote until at least 2016 after the House and Senate each passed an amendment without the civil unions ban.
That was different from the proposal last year and that means that it didn’t pass two years in a row as required by law to be placed on the ballot.
