Indiana Advances Gay-Marriage Ban

The Indiana House of Representatives voted Tuesday to send a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage to its state senate. If approved, Hoosiers would vote on the measure in 2016. Indiana law already bans same-sex marriage, but supporters want that to be enshrined in the state's constitution. In a very small victory for gay-rights activists, several Republicans bucked party leadership to remove language that would have also banned civil unions.
