Indiana House Advances Bill Banning Same-Sex Marriage

Last updated on Wednesday, February 16, 2011

(STATEHOUSE) -The Indiana House advances a bill that would amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage and civil unions by a 70-26 vote.

The legislation defines marriage as only legal between one man and one woman in Indiana.

It also prohibits civil unions by including language that a legal status "substantially similar" to marriage for unmarried people is not valid.
