HJR-6 Passes, 70-26

A gay marriage ban is in its first steps to becoming a permanent part of Indiana's Constitution. Even former speaker J. Patrick Bauer voted for the resolution.

The Democratic Minority Leader in the Indiana House wants to write discrimination into the Indiana Constitution. It's a sad, cloudy day for equality in Indiana.

Leader Bauer, I hope that when you look yourself in the mirror tonight that you see the thousands of LGBT Hoosiers, marriage equality advocates, and their supporters that you just disappointed today.

Here is a list of who voted for and who voted against the bill. Bravo to the 26 House members voting no including Republican Edward Clere.
