The version that passed today was amended yesterday to strip a provision banning recognition of relationships "substantially similar" to marriage, such as civil unions and domestic partnerships.
The Senate must now debate and vote on the changes to the amendment. They're expected to take it up next week at the earliest.
Meghan Robertson, the Freedom Indiana campaign manager, reacted in an email to supporters, saying, "What we accomplished together in the House is downright impressive: We nearly had this amendment stopped in the House Judiciary Committee, before Speaker Bosma changed committees and took extraordinary steps to advance HJR-3 to the floor."
"While we are disappointed that this harmful amendment cleared the House, we certainly are not deterred. We took a huge step forward yesterday as members of the House voted overwhelmingly to strike down the dangerous second sentence of HJR-3 -- meaning we are still closer than ever to keeping this amendment off the ballot this year," she said.
"Now, as HJR-3 moves to the Senate, we have to fight even harder to keep the second sentence out, and more importantly, to stop this mean-spirited bill once and for all."
