The Number You Have Reached Has Been Changed...The New Number Is...HJR-3

The resolution attempting to put marriage discrimination into the Indiana Constitution has been known as House Joint Resolution 6 in Indiana since it passed in 2011.

Nix 6 has become the rallying cry for Freedom Indiana and others interested in seeing the resolution die.

Yesterday, Brian Bosma, the Speaker of the House, said that marriage was not on the Republican agenda for 2014.  The next day, Eric Turner, Speaker Pro Tem of the Indiana House, filed the language of HJR-6 as HJR-3.  He also filed a companion bill, House Bill 1153, which will govern the ballot language should HJR-3 be passed by the General Assembly.

It's a mess.

Bottom line is that HJR-6 is now HJR-3.  Please make a note of it.
