INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma says lawmakers are
taking their time deciding how they'll vote on a proposed amendment that
would ban gay marriage.
The Indianapolis Republican said Wednesday that a vote by the House
Judiciary Committee could happen next week. Members of that panel had
planned a vote Monday, but delayed it following hours of emotional
Bosma said he has not counted the votes on the committee, but believes any
decision would be a narrow one.
The delayed vote is another indicator of how much the ground has shifted
on the issue since 2011, when the amendment passed the Legislature with
strong bipartisan support.
Republican Gov. Mike Pence asked lawmakers to vote on the issue this year
during his State of the State address.
