The Indianapolis Star has a story today about the fate of Indiana's constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage and civil unions. There's not really any new information, but it's nice to see the Star helping to raise awareness.
Sen. Brandt Hershman, R-Wheatfield, has sponsored the amendment in the Senate in past instances. Though he said he'd do so again this session, Hershman said it will be up to the House to pass the amendment first.
"I don't see a benefit in the Senate stating a view it has stated three times previously," Hershman said. "There is little use to move it forward if the House is simply going to block further consideration.
That means Rep. P. Eric Turner, R-Marion, will be charged with pushing the measure first -- a job that he said he's willing to tackle.
