The bill to prohibit marriage equality in the consitution of Indiana was approved by the Senate. 

In March 2011, the Senate approved for the first time this prohibition by a 40-10 vote.

Then, last January, the House passed this resolution by a 57-40 vote. However, following a change in the bill, the measure has to go back to the Senate where it was, again, approved.

Now, and sill because of this change, the bill must be approved in two consecutive legislative sessions and then placed on a ballot. Its supporters hope to push the bill for the ballot of the next year.
