Ind. House approves proposal to put gay marriage ban in constitution

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On Tuesday afternoon, Indiana's House of Representatives approved a proposal that would place the state's gay marriage ban in the state constitution.

It narrowly passed and now heads to the Senate.

Under the proposal, civil unions and employer benefits for same-sex couples can still be approved. It also would potentially reset the clock on Indiana's lengthy process of amending the constitution.

But Senate Republicans could put the measure back on course to appear on the November ballot.
