Indiana House Speaker Moves Gay Marriage Ban to Committee More Inclined to Advance It

BosmaIndiana House Speaker Brian Bosma made the unusual move of directing the proposed constitutional ban on same-sex marriage from the House Judiciary Committee to the House Elections and Apportionment Committee today even though the former has already held a hearing with hours of public testimony.


The bill is stalling in the Judiciary Committee for lack of support and the new committee is more conservative and contains at least one Democrat who says he supports a ban, the AP reports:

Bosma had promised publicly to let the ban run a normal course in the Legislature but took a more forceful role in advancing it amid concerns that it would die in committee.
